hello, i'm learning to knit.
well, i learned the basics from a friend about a year ago, and never thought i learned incorrectly. i knitted a scarf and it looked right...
but, i'm about to join a kniting workshop so i got a book: How To Knit, to learn a bit more. And i knit backwards!!! the book says they do it differently in other countries and i guess i learned the foreign way. i hold the yarn in my left hand.
will this impede my ability to knit? i can't decifer the picture instructions because i hold it all differently. i tried and tried to re learn but my way just seems so much easier!
this has led me to doubt that i have even been 'knitting' all this time. i think i was purling. how can i know the difference? i tried making a stockingette swatch, but it was all knitted- looking. i don't know what i'm doing anymore?!
please, if you knit, help me!
