Just now I Googled knitting left handed with better results. If you can add something to the available resources, go for it! The few things I had come up with are in post 68 on page 19 of my blog thread.
I have noticed throughout my research of how to do certain stitches that I have to do them step by step and teach myself how to do them "backwards." It happened with my sweater that I made for Maya too because when I saw appearing in front of me was "backwards" of what was appearing in the pictures the author had taken. It's all good. It just means I make unique looking things. hehe

I cast on 30 stitches then started with K2 and wound up ending with K2. I noticed too that it didn't look exactly like what I was seeing on my computer screen, but two things ran through my mind.

1 - I didn't care.
2 - I liked how it was turning out regardless.

:D
