Definitely ROFL, Antares. I totally hear you though. When I switched to continental, my left hand had no clue, and now I think my right hand has no clue.
And I just came back from a visit with my niece and nephews where my right handed 11-year-old niece has learned how to knit, kinda backwards (through the back loop). I didn't say anything. Figured if all the stitches were that way it works out.
I then proceeded to attempt to teach my left handed 7 year old nephew how to knit, left handed, English style. I'm right handed. I still don't know whether we were wrapping the yarn in the right direction. I couldn't think of how to do it, I could only do it. Even though I can theoretically do it with both hands.
So, I've come to the conclusion that as far as knitting goes, it really doesn't matter if one hand knows what the other is doing. As long as it works, go with it!
