I am not yet convinced that I am capable of knitting with two strands of yarn at the same time. I am currently trying (and the key word here at the moment is TRY) to make a baby hat for my dear friend Princess that involves double knitting. And, apparently, you can't do double knitting only using the English method.

So last night I watched a few videos and read a few tutorials and figured out how to knit Continentially. Which is slightly weird but not difficult although my gauge is definitely tighter at this moment. However, the minute I add that extra strand of yarn to either hand it all ends up going very wrong. Tension becomes a thing I can only dream of and somehow despite doing what the videos tell me, I am still carrying the yarn across the front. *pout*

P.S. Yes I also know that really what I need to do is sit down and practice for you know more than half an hour but I'm choosing to ignore that at the moment and hope it will all magically work out anyway
