However, if I ever try entrelac, you had better believe that I'm going to be knitting backwards!

THAT is exactly why I did. I was using Lion Brand Hometown USA and it was getting HEAVY. after a couple of blocks, it was like second nature. I'm a lefty knitting left handed... that seems to be rare these days!

Apparently I'm not that odd, then! I'm a right handed continental knitter (it seemed a natural move from how I hold the yarn for crochet). On my first entrelac project, all the turning drove me insane, so I tried doing left handed English knitting to keep the yarn on the same hand and it worked! Now I just throw leftie if I've got short back and forth sections like sock heels and slipper tops, but still turn if it's a long stretch.

Wow, I always fought that ambidextrous knitting would be really hard to learn, but it only took me about an hour to get the same speed knitting from left to right as when purling. I expect to be a much faster knitter in the future!
