I'm not exactly sure what you meant in your previous knitting post by moving your index finger up and down. Is it something you do only while purling? If so, have you tried combination knitting (http://anniemodesitt.com/combo/)? The purling is done a bit differently. I knit continental and have been working on switching to combination knitting. The problem is that it works best in the flat and I like to knit socks so I knit in the round a lot.

If I were to re-learn knitting, I think I would learn Irish Cottage knitting or Peruvian knitting, which is supposed to be very, very fast and is supposed to be more resistant to repetitive movement injuries. Have you heard of the Yarn Harlot? She does Irish Cottage Knitting. It's sort of like English in that you "throw" rather than "pick." Might be worth looking into.
