It's great to have a left handed knitter in residence so to speak. Occasionally someone asks about how to knit left handed here and even the lefties tend to knit right handed. I searched for links and they were hard to come by, so I saved a few to my blog thread, Grumpy Gramma's Useful Stuff, in hopes of finding them when they're wanted. 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 also thought this was a moss stitch or a seed stitch and not a rib! How many stitches did you cast on Lauren? An odd or an even number?

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

Okie doke. Yes, when I flip it over to do the next row, I just keep with K2, P2, K2, P2, because when I don't then it turns into the checkered scarf I did. I'm still learning stitches. All I know is that regardless of "which side I'm on" (RS or WS) I still K2, P2, K2, P2, etc.

We're all still learning. I'm only going to keep knitting until there's nothing more to learn about it. I think I'm good for the rest of the week anyhow.

I'm getting ready to knit some scarves and hats for my cousin and her host family (she is an exchange student in Germany for a year), so that'll be fun too!

What matters, Lauren, is the finished piece. Usually when it's done, you should not be able to tell if it was done by a right or a left hander. Generally speaking though, while you're working it will generally be a mirror image of what a right hander would do. All in all, looks like you're off to a great start, and I too look forward to the finished object.
