I normally hold the yarn in my left hand--whichever method that is (I can't ever remember and telling me won't help 'cause I'll promptly forget again); I learned crochet first, and so this method feels the most natural. However, I'm right-handed. When doing colorwork knitting and holding a strand in each hand, I often find it amusing that my usual brilliant right hand hasn't a clue what it's supposed to do. It's forced to humble itself and take a cue from the (normally STOOOOPID) left hand. (I think I've even caught my left hand making mocking, obscene gestures at my right hand--it has to get even somehow, you know!)
