    Thank you, Rachel, for showing this. That was educational ????. I really enjoyed the visual of this technique and the sound of passing steam train and the climpses of lovely George, ofcourse. I see you’re knooking continental style. Is this also the way you knit?

      I'm glad you enjoyed it :-)
      To be honest, it's so long since I used a pair of knitting needles that I couldn't tell you if I knit the same way as I knook or not. I don't even knook consistently - luckily, with the cord the yarn sits flatter to the fabric so it's easier to see which way round the loop goes. Every so often I'll be working along a row and something's a bit off: "Oh, look! That stitch is round backwards!" - and so I'll go into the other side of the stitch. Sometimes it's just one, sometimes it's a short run of them. I have no idea why I do this, but somehow I get away with it and the end result is fine.
