Hi, all.  I'm a new knitter -- started about a year ago.  I have watched all the Bill Souza videos on YouTube to learn the basics and now would like to learn how to convert more complicated stitches…Continue

Left-hand knit stitch in the continental style

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."

Sports come into the crochet category for me - don't feel right in either hand which is what I blame for not being good at any of them.

Tennis, bowling, right-handed too.  Left-handed doesn't feel right for those things and bad results in bowling too, can't keep the ball out of the gutter.  Very strange.

Me too. Writing and sewing left-handed, painting (as in decorating) either, and knitting,crochet, knives and  scissors right-handed. How many people in this group are completely left-handed?

I write left-handed, but I crochet right-handed, because that's the way I learned.  Hi everyone!

I know we have mentioned that Michelangelo was left-handed but did you realize that on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel Adam is left-handed ?   ( Just a little nugget that I had tucked away  in my right centred brain )

Christine, how true !   I still think like a leftie when I crochet, which gives us an advantage right :-)  I'm not sure what it is but I'm sticking by my statement LOL

Hi Courtney,  Welcome to the forum....and the left-handed group.  Do you knit or crochet ?   Because I'm left-handed I find it easier to crochet, eventhough I hold the hook in my right hand !  Looking forward to hearing how you manage in the right-handed world.  If you're like the rest of us here, you are probably quite ambidextrous.

Me too!

Although I found that crochet was no easier in either hand and so learnt to do it like a right-handed person I find that I still think like a leftie about it and I'm always wanting to start from the left-hand side like I would if sewing.

Well, as science and experts change their minds on what is right every 5 minutes, I think I like the twin idea  too.  They don't run in our family but in some cases it could be true.  There's more lefties than righties that are creative because the right side of the brain is creative and the left hand links to it directly.  We do tend to have more accidents, percentage wise as we live in a "rightie" world.  I too do house painting with either hand, and I learnt to use my eating utensils right handed. I think a degree of ambidexterity is a plus! :)
Comment by Debbie Posmontier on January 17, 2011 at 7:45am
I researched the twin theory and it is refuted in several places....too bad, I liked the idea! Instead, the current thinking seems to be that a lefty's brain in utero was bathed in higher than normal levels of testosterone, encouraging new development of the right hemisphere which controls the left side of the body and creativity and spatial awareness, etc. Just a theory, though. Wonder if scientists will ever figure us out??
