holding the working yarn
I just taught myself how to cast on and to knit stitch yesterday. When I am knitting my first row stitches I cannot hold the yarn like normal in my right hand fingers, my hand I knit with, it feels more comfortable to hold my yarn in my left hand with the cast on or where the stitches that are done are. Is this going to mess up my work in the future? Any knitting tips for this first timer?? Thank you!!

Since I hold the working yarn in my left hand (Continental knitting) that doesn't seem odd to me at all. I don't know if working the first row Continental then switching to English will be a problem. Maybe you would be more comfortable always holding it in your left hand. One way isn't better than the other except that one way will probably be easier for you and so for you that method is better. Knowing how to knit both ways is good.
