Hello From Missouri
I am fairly new to knitting, and I'm a lefty, so that means it's more of a challenge for me when it comes to using books on knitting :rollseyes:

I just had a yarn shop open up down the road from me and the owner has classes. She said she learned to knit lefthanded so she can teach all the lefties she's met. I'm going to be signing up for some of her classes, and I can't wait! I'm tired of knitting scarves! :XX:

Hi Diana!

I am a leftie too, and started teaching (what I thought, anyway) myself continental style, cause i was going to be holding the yarn in my left hand anyway. What I ended up doing was knitting left handed english!

Too funny! Btw, don't listen to anyone tell you the best way for us lefties to learn to knit....do what feels best for YOU!

Katy

I have not seen Missouri called Misery in a long time! I grew up in Kirksville Missouri and that is what we were very fond of calling it.

Hi Diana Welcome to the friendliest place on the internet

If you're close to the KS side, i've got a knitting group to invite you to. I've already snagged one person off of here.

Welcome to KH!
