I learned to knit in the English or throwing style, and I've pretty much stuck with that my whole life. I know that people say Continental (or picking) is faster and easier on the joints (which I certainly need), and I can work this method if I want to or need to, but I still feel a lot more comfortable with the English method, since that's what I've been doing for so many years.
I assume most of us are the same way, that we knit the way we learned originally, but I'd love to hear from any of you who learned one method first, then tried another and decided that was the better way for you. Why did you make the switch? What do you see as the advantages or disadvantages of the method you use?
