Direction of yarn throw
OK so I love this site, and I also wish I'd never found it. Let me e'splain what I mean.
I have been knitting for over a year now and I learned from my mom, who learned from her mom. My Mom was convinced she wraps the yarn the wrong way(counterclockwise), so she teaches me the opposite(clockwise). Good so far, I made a gazillion and a half scarves this year for presents for the family. The finished projects look great, but then so do mom's.
I start looking though the videos and low and behold the lady in the videos wraps the yarn the way mom does!
I am trying to get mom on here to check it out, because she is convinced that she has been wrong all this time.
While this vindicates mom it leaves me with a bit of a problem. I have two afgan projects on the needle and a big sense of frustration over "doing it all wrong". I don't mind learning to wrap the yarn differently on the next project if it makes a big difference, but worry about reinforcing bad habits if I complete these afgans.
What kind of harm am I doing on this big a project by wrapping the yarn clockwise?
Thanks for any help you can give,
