Most Americans learn to knit English style – that is, holding the working yarn in your right hand and “throwing” the yarn to create the stitch. However, some people find that Continental style – holding the working yarn steady in your left hand and “picking” the stitches with the right needle – is more efficient and can reduce pain caused by carpal tunnel or tendonitis. In this two-hour workshop, you’ll learn how to knit and purl Continental style. Supplies not included.

Was just thinking the same thing. No idea what some of these projects are. Figure I'll go to Ravelry and hopefully they'll be there. If you post photos, please let us know. Thanks!
