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…Continue

about the left-handed sweater

Heather, Did you have to reverse the pattern? I knit left-handed I don't think it would make a difference. People comment all the time, "I have never seen anyone knit left-handed before."

You could also make slippers for the kids from the Phentex yarn I imagine but I don't know how warm that old style stuff would be. It would certainly last a long time though.

Barbara, any yarn that is soft and warm is acceptable for squares!

Evelyn, that's wonderful that you have started a craft  group and are spreading the word about KAS.

We have been quiet here.  Guess we are busy making squares :-)  

I'm starting a crocheted carry bag for my Mom's birthday. The bag will attach to her walker and carry her sunglasses and odd and ends that don't fit in the purse.

Left handed people definately use their right hands more than righties use their left. I guess we have all had to be good at adapting when different equipment is or isn't available/invented. Not only are we left handed but we are also incredibly good at adapting.

Maybe the reason I don't like knitting is because I was taught to do it by a right handed person ?  I should look into doing it left-handed.....there must be a youtube video for it.   Paula, any suggestions would be appreciated !

Right-hand needle to left-hand needle? Congratulations - I think that means you are a real leftie.

Most of my family are right-handed, including my 3 children.  Both my parents were right-handed too.  Where did it come from?  My knitting is right to left, am I doing it backwards?  Very confusing.

I do most things left-handed...writing, cutting, sewing, cooking, etc. I used to play golf and bat a ball right-handed (lack of lefty golf clubs!) but played tennis left-handed. I haven't played any sports for some years now...content to walk on the treadmill and ride a bike. It has come in handy when I've taught writing...who else can help a lefty?? I knit in the conventional way...left to right and crochet with my left hand. My husband and one of my two sons are lefties so 3/4 of this family is left-handed while in the rest of the population it is only 10% lefty, 90% righty. Interesting!

I think left-handed people have to learn to use both hands or we wouldn't survive in this right-handed world.  I tried golf and wasn't very good at it as I couldn't figure out which way to swing. The club didn't feel comfortable in either hand.  The problem might also be because I'm not exactly athletic :-)

I can use the computer mouse with either hand.  It was a bit of a challenge for the right hand at first.

When I started school, the teacher asked my parents if they wanted me changed to a right handed writer.  Fortunately my parents said no and they showed me how to angle the paper so I wasn't writing and dragging my hand across the paper. 

I found a pair of scissors that can be used with either hand !  What a bonus.  I find I switch from left to right depending upon the skill needed to cut.  Any fine work with sewing, etc I use my left hand.
