sooo double post, but i think I knit weird. i watched a video of a lady doing both continental and english and i don't really knit like either of those O.o i learned from a book, which i think i've lost. maybe english or continental would be easier.

also i've decided that red heart super saver yarn sucks too xD but that's what i'm using on the pillow i'm making.

Yeah, I stay away from economy yarn. I can hear it squeaking while I knit. >__< ugh.
The Acrylic/Alpaca/Wool blends are alright though. Also Bamboo!~ <3
And the Fisherman's Wool is nice, though pricey. :)

What style do you knit? xD I'm super slow when I use continental, so I mainly use English-style. :P

um i'm not sure. when i looked at a video of someone demonstrating both, it didn't really look like either Dx

eta: i mostly bought all this yarn when i started on the knifty knitter. but i like the needles better. even though i do it weird.

eta 2: i insert my needle in the back of the loop if that makes a difference

eta 3: i have dropped two stitches on this pillow already ahhhh u.u
