Thanks! This is awesome! I'm trying to convert completely to Continental and my hands are so hardwired that I have a hard time with coordination with the standard Continental purl. I have done the regular Russian purl (had not idea it was an actual , regularly performed method!!) in just trying to figure out a way to simplify the purl, but didn't want to have to worry about then knitting into the back to correct the twisted purls. I'll try this tonight!

Thank you so much for this link. I finally have figured out why my purl stitches were so tight. They are getting twisted when doing Continental style in the round. I have watched the video and it is amazing how much easier it is to do a purl stitch esp. with ribbing in the round. Since I taught myself to knit nearly 2 years ago I have been able to knit either Continental or European style (throwing the yarn). Because I crocheted for years and was use to holding the yarn/thread in my left hand but found it easier to learn to throw my yarn/thread. Anyhow thanks again for this link. Now my purl stitches won't be tight as before.
