Response to beac (Original post)

26. At age 67, I changed.

I'm as happy as can be with the way I now knit.

Knittinghelp.com and Ravelry.com have all the help I needed for learning to knit the Russian method I wanted to learn. I can't make my old fingers do the 'purling dance' that is called for in continental. The knit stitch is the same for both, however, the purl stitch is really simple for Russian (often called Combined knitting) If you join Ravelry there general groups that will talk you through any problems.

There also hundreds (maybe thousands) of youtube videos to show the different ways to knit or purl. I say --- go for it.
