Dudes. Instructor stands there and does ONE knit stitch - slowly, deliberately, and on what looked like #17 needles - and I was all like, "....ooooooooooh! I SEE!"
It's not exactly "as natural as throwing" for me yet, but I can envision a future where it is...and I'm knitting a LOT faster. Woot!

I am SOOOOOOOO jealous! Hope you love every minute.
Yeah, I'm left handed, and never got the hang of continental. I can do it, very very slowly, but prefer the other way.
Hope you enjoy the rest of your time there:)
After "throwing" for about 40 years I decided to learn to "pick" It is the berries for doing ribbing.
Your speed will definitely pick up as you get more used to it.
See, I'm a right-handed Continental knitter, and I'm danged if I can get the hang of purling English style. Admittedly I never actually *practice* purling in English- I mostly use it for colorwork. Two-handed technique is absolutely *awesome* for colorwork.
