I learned how to knit continental style. My joke is that I know how to knit. But only the knit stitch. But can not get the hang of the purl stitch in the continental method. But I am fine with only knitting as I am not interested in attempting anything such as reversing patterns for sweaters, etc. Knitting is perfect for 8 in squares and scarfs. I do crochet and know how to crochet many different crochet stitches - left-handed. So, I can crochet and 'knit' - left-handed. :)

Good for you! I am left-handed, too, and it took me a long time to learn how to knit when I was a child. I finally got the hang of it by watching someone knit from the back side of her work. Then it made sense to me! I knit right-handed now but I crochet with my left hand. I do everything else with my left hand. My husband and one of my sons are left handed, too. We are the majority in this family!! Have a wonderful Christmas and a happy new year!

That is the way I taught my daughter, who is right-handed and right-handed Brownies how to crochet - we sat across from each other. It is a lot easier to learn (left to right or right to left) that way, than sitting next to each other. It was like looking into a mirror. Everything is opposite but when you are teaching 'opposite', it becomes the 'same' and the best way to teach and learn. I hope that makes sense. :)

That makes perfect sense...probably only to us lefties, though!

Hi Elizabeth, although I do most things with my left hand, I crochet with my right !   Probably because my aunt was right handed and I learned from her :-)

"CreateCare Global has set itself two tasks. The first is physical: to bring hope, support and comfort to children for whom poverty and loss are everyday tormentors. The second, and in our view equally important, is to spread the message to the world."
