Knitting: European or Continental?

Lili who is Portuguese commented on my post about Portuguese knitting.

I've always called my way "European" but after receiving Lili's comment, I did some searching and my way is more often called "continental".

So to clear up any confusion, I found this video that shows the "continental" way of knitting that I was first taught.

Swoopy ring tutorial

I finally finished writing this tutorial for my swoopy ring. I was going to open an Etsy store and sell it there, but that seems like a lot of trouble since I might never get around to writing another tutorial. Besides, I've learned everything I know about making jewellery from generous folks on the web, so it's way past time that I should give something back.

All I ask is that you don't open a factory and start mass producing these rings. If you want to do that, email me and we'll talk.
