Saw this video on whip up just before the weekend, and I was intrigued. The continental method seems much more efficient than the English method (where the yarn supply is held in the right hand). With numerous projects on the go and lined up for me to complete, I would like to start knitting more quickly. I tried my hand at it over the weekend, but it was very slow going because it requires coordination and a feel for the tension. Essentially the yarn is set up on my left hand in such a way that very little motion is used when creating new loops. Anyways, for my friends who knit, have a look for yourself:
