Girls,
I have read these over and over and I'm just not getting it. I'm knitting the way the teacher handed it to me. Know she is left handed is that what is messing me up?
I have flipped this thing and the working yarn is on the lef and i would be knitting from the bottom towards the top and that isn't right. I have always knitting from the top of the needle down. I bet if one of you were here it would work.
I don't get why I would have to rip it all out.
HUM, thanks girls. I'll keep reading and trying,
Susie

Mary, Tab and Kelly,
Thanks for being SO happy for me. Whew. I'm NOT dull. LOL. The lighbulb took a while to go off but I got it. Thanks gals.
Hey, would having a left handed teacher make it so I'm doing things backards like that all the time? I took it the way she handed it to me and she watched and said YUP YOU'VE GOT IT. Oh my.
Thanks again,
Susie

Hi Susie,

I'm left handed, but I knit right handed, English style. If someone is truly knitting left handed their stitches are going from the right hand needle to the left hand needle. I never could wrap my head around left handed knitting, even though in most things I'm VERY left dominant.

I suppose your teacher could be doing some kind of variation though. The person who taught me was right handed, but she ALWAYS knit into the back of the loop, and it took several years before I figured out why I had crossed stockinette and not the nice smooth VVVV.

Variety may be the spice of life, but every now and then bland is OK.

Mary

Mary,
Oh, so some people do knit like I was knitting? Maybe my teacher does. Apparently she does as that is the way she handed it to me.
That is right though she would be going right to left.
It is no doubt me messing me up.
Thanks,
Susie
