Blessings on all left handers (I've been told you're in your right mind ) and your needles!

smallchild, I'm curious and I hope you don't mind my asking. Do you knit left handed, that is the needle making the stitches is held in you left hand? I know a lot of people have had questions about true left handed knitting.

No problem, I am a true left-handed knitter so I have to use a mirror sometimes. People think I'm strange when they see me facing away from the computer looking at a mirror. I have learned when I watch a video, to switch it to a mirror image in my head automatically.
Do you, salmonmac, knit lefty style?

A friend's mom taught me to knit as a kid. Since she could only knit righty, that's the way I learned.
Do you use a computer mouse in your right or left hand? (For convenience, I use a mouse right-handed.)

I use it in my right hand. I can do certain things better with my right and others with my left. My right arm is stronger than my left, but I eat, write, and knit with my left.

The way I learned to knit was from a book called "I Taught Myself Knitting" and it had a lefty section.
