Like crochet i have discovered that it is all in how you hold yarn to get you comfortable with it. you will have to decide if you are going to knit english or continental. i have tried both and have decided english feels to best for me. i have tried the european method but holding the yarn in the left hand and squishing my fingers together to make the stitch makes my hand feel cramped. As soon as you have decided on a style you will feel more comfortable ...i know i did.
