Double knitting revelation

I’ve been reading up on double knitting, because it features in some of my currently-planned projects, and I’ve had a revelation: if you want your two pieces to be separate, you don’t have to be constantly moving yarn back and forth if you knit stocking stitch right sides together – then you’re purling the front piece English-style and knitting the back piece continental; one yarn per hand, and each on the correct side of the knitting at all times. And it works both in the round and flat. Hoorah!
