I have started to knit again. I was taught to knit in primary school. I remember being the worst knitter in my class. I just couldn’t get the wool round the needles correctly. My teacher realised that my problem could be solved by teaching me to knit left-handed.
Left-handed knitting does make it difficult for me to learn new techniques. I find it really hard to follow the instructions. I also find watching other people knit confusing. I now get Marty to translate confusing knitting instructions for me. It should be a simple matter for me to reverse the instructions but you only have to mention left and right and I’m bewildered.
