How do I hold my yarn
So, I am learning to knit and I love it. However, I feel that I hold my needles and yarn awkwardly and I would like to learn to do it like a pro.
I currently let go of my right needle when it's time to wrap my yarn and use that whole hand (Does that make sense?) I wanted to link to a youtube vid here, but the rules of the forum said nay to that.
And aside from feeling like I look silly, I have two problems. First, It makes me knit slowly, and second, it makes purling in general and knitting on circular needles nearly impossible.
Iím sort of spatially challenged so, if someone could direct me to a video or something that shows me how to hold stuff I would be very grateful.

Thanks,
Adriana-
