I am extremely left-handed, so all my knitting is backwards to everybody else’s. I taught myself from books by reversing the instructions; e.g., when the instructions mention RH needle, I substitute LH needle, etc. I have worked very hard and have managed to produce a decent stockinette stitch that isn’t twisted.
I went to two yarns shops for help yesterday. The owner of the first one blew me off as if I were from another planet, and the second one offered me private lessons to help me learn to knit right-handed. I was told that I could not progress to more difficult patterns as long as I am approaching from the wrong direction. I’ll admit many books say left-handed knitters should learn to knit right-handed or learn the Continental method, but this defies logic to me. Left-handed people are people too!
Does anyone have any thoughts or suggestions to help us poor lefties?
