I flatter myself with beeing able to knit whatever I want, but I simply cannot teach. I've tried to show my daughters (when they were actually interested for about five minutes) but I don't have the patience and I can't put in words what I know in my hands. Weird.
Lucky for me my mum didn't have the same restrictions in her head. Sic. She was the better mum.

According to some, I knit "wrong" as well. But it comes out with the same damn results. When I taught my friend, she was left handed so it was awkward for me, but she got the general idea and does it different than I and she's doing great.

Now get craftin'!

I know this is an old thread (OK, VERY OLD), but I had NO IDEA there was another way to knit!  I'm going to try the continental way and it will probably be much quicker.

Oh, and I found a youtube link and sent it to my Mom, who taught me to knit 30 years ago!!! LOL

 I have been knitting for  4 years now and took one class by an eccentric teacher..I too have wondered if I learned the 'right' way..especially now that people are asking me to teach them..jeepers if I am doing it wrong then I could teach them wrong..

anywho..I wouldnt worry too much about it..I think the trick now is retraining yourself to do it without the twist..good luck..

its ME!!
