I'm working on a felted bag in the round, and the knitting is fairly tedious.
So it occurs to me that if felting really does hide a multitude of sins, this would be the ideal time to practice knitting continental. I've always been able to fake my way through a knit stitch in continental, but not a purl. But the time I'm done this bag, I should be an expert at the knit stitch, and fairly fast.
Let's see how it goes.
And then I'll have to do the same project again on the wrong side to practice a continental purl.
