As a sinister person, I learned Continental knitting so that I wouldn't
knit backwards, and because it's much faster for me. Also, it's easier on my rheumatic old body, since there are fewer moving parts.
But, what was said about knitting however you can have fun with it is so true. I mean, why bother to knit if you're not enjoying yourself? You can go and buy clothing just about anywhere, and for much less.
Which ever hand you use, I hope you just enjoy the whole process.
