Yay for Knitting!

I just finished my first and second knitting projects – a man’s hat and an iPod/cell phone case. Photos to follow.
Knitting is great. I just get a cramp in my left hand, and I’m still much faster crocheting, obviously. I discovered that I’m knitting a little weird. It took me awhile to figure it out, but I think I’m Combined Knitting, which, from what I understand, is a cross between Continental and English Methods. So I guess I hold the working yarn in my left hand as for Continental, but I wrap it around the needle the direction for English. It’s no big deal, except that I purl standard Continental Method. The mixture of the two creates stitches that are disoriented on the needle and things can look twisted. So either I’m going to make myself knit standardly, or I’m going to learn to purl the combined way.
