How to Knit Eastern European Style

My son is a budding film artist, so I asked him to video me demonstrating Eastern European knitting. I show how the stitch orientation is different from Continental and English style along with demonstrating Eastern European knit and purl. Just remember, even though it seems you are twisting stitches, everything turns out right in the end.

Here's what we came up with. Let me know what you think.

Can you explain how to do a decrease, using Eastern European style? If a western pattern calls for SSK, or K2T, how do you translate that for Eastern European?
