yayyyy!!!!!!!!! that's awesome! go buy some yarn to celebrate!
sometimes you just dont get the click... then you just have to be satisfied that what you're doing works for you. KK told me in May that I purl funky (i mant ot have someome take a picture yesterday but forgot!)... i hold the needles "weird", which i do, and i still throw even though i knit left handed. Anyway, it works for me, so i'm not changin!
remember, internette, what is right for someone else might be all wrong for you! do it how you're comfortable... no sense in stressing out because you're trying to change!
