My Sunday afternoon knitting group, Carolina Flyers on Ravelry, somehow got "volunteered" to make wristbands for the Carolina Rollergirls (our local flat track roller derby team) about two weeks ago. Since I was between projects, I decided to make a few of them with left over yarn. I also decided to try out continental knitting to see how I liked it. I managed to make 2 of the wristbands before switching back. The frustration wasn't worth it. It was taking about three hours to make one. When I switched back, it only took about 2 hours.
