You might get faster at knitting the more you do it, but it doesn't really matter how fast we knit, just that we're enjoying ourselves! I have switched to knitting in the continental method because it's easier on my wrists. I love learning new things as a group, too, and getting to communicate with others while we work on the same pattern!! It's like we're all in this together!
i had never seen the continental method, so i went and watched a video... i might have to try that some time! it looks like it would actually be quicker once you learn it since your hands can stay on the needles the whole time.
