I knit with one needle under my arm (a Spanish lady taught me) so I can't use circular needles, do you think I can still take this course?

In Holland we knit also with one needle under the arm. I tought I couldnt do it; but I just tried and was surprised at how easy I got used to knitting with circular needles. It's a littlebit slower; but that's all ...

Hmmm, good question... I think you could still knit that way with two circulars, putting a stopper at the end of each, the problem is that you will end up with alot of stitches on your needle and the straights aren't long enough. Does this make sense?

As a child I also learned to put one needle under my arm. It makes knitting much more tense. I have now started to let this go free by putting my hands on my lap while knitting. In the beginning it went very slow but very soon I got used to it. Sometimes I still have a reflex that I want to slip it under my arm, but mostly it goes very well without it. It feels more relaxed now.
