I'm a HARD CORE lefty!!! I do everything lefty. Pour drinks, grab door handles, eat, throw a ball, etc. EVERYTHING! (btw,..can u tell I love being lefty?! )LOL!!
I taught my right handed daughter to knit. She's only 7. I first taught her continental. Then noticed she was having a bit of trouble. But she was doing it all by herself. I was like WHOA, Good Job!
But I could tell that english method would probably be easier for her. So then I thought LOL just like you but in reverse..."how am I going to teach her right handed??" :thinking:
So I played around with the needles a few minutes (english method) and I got it...then showed her. It clicked for her quite fast.
If you knit continental, then being a lefty...I think that would be easiest for him to learn. Very natural for lefties IMO to learn. If you knit english method...then try maybe teaching yourself continental then show him.
Maybe show him Amy's videos of continental knitting, along w/ some instructional bks. etc.
KNITBIT :XX: <<---happy lefty!!
