Continental Knitting with Kira K

Knitting continental-style (picking your yarn with your left hand) is faster than American-style (throwing your yarn with your right hand), especially with knit/purl or lace stitch patterns.  Switching to continental-style knitting takes some patience.  In this class, Kira will give you lots of tips to help you make the transition smoothly.  This class is for American-style knitters of any level. Those of you who crochet or are left-handed may find it easier to learn to knit continental-style right off the bat.
