knitting series: skill builder continental knitting

Now you have grasped the basics of knitting and want to knit everything, you need to knit faster....this is the class for you!
Continental knitting (aka "picking") is a form of knitting that helps you knit much faster than English style (aka "throwing") which is the style most new knitters are taught.

In this class, you will learn how to hold and create tension on your yarn and knit and purl continental, quickly alternating between the two stitches. As this is a class on learning a new style, there won't be any particular project to complete. Instead, you will be creating swatches in practicing the new stitches. 

Required Materials:
- DK weight yarn of your choice with size US7 needles, yarn should be caked up and ready to work with. Worsted weight yarn also works and should be accompanied by US8 needles.
- Straight needles (short) or circular needles (16"-24" in length)

Students should have a strong command of long tail cast-on and knitting/ purling English style to be successful in the class.
