Beautiful patterns and you are so good at knitting. I cannot hold the yarn with my left fingers due to arthritis so continue in the same old way. Thank you for letting me look at these

Hi Shirley. I am using continental way of knitting. I believe there is no difference at the end, whichever way you are using, the most important you enjoy the knit process.
