Longtime lefty, 1st time swapper, I crochet lefthanded. Could we post some ideas for items or is that bad swap etiquette?

I still haven't figured out how to knit or crochet.. and I've tried watching people, the mirror and all sorts of ways, nothing seems to work though Sad

We were tossing lefty crocheting ideas around on this thread...though I see you've already been on it.  I'm still struggling to understand crochet, but I knit continental style with no trouble.

I might be interested in a swap.  I make journals, but for class notes, I used to just buy the 1 subject spiral notebooks and flip them around so I started on the last page and worked to the front.  It confused the heck out of all the right-handed people sitting around me in class.  Grin

I'd be totally interested.

Actually, I ended up stumbling across lots of neat southpaw sites today, so keep me posted

ahhh!! I do that too!! It's so much easier, and it's funny when you lend your notebook to a righty to copy the notes how one page it's opposite and the othre is "correct" sided.. confuses them to no end!! I love the idea of a lefty journal!

rah! left-handers rock!
  I am interested in swapping. it's hard at college cuz all they have are the righthanded desks. I've tried asking them for more lefthanded desks  for 3 years now, but so far there are a grand total of two lefthanded desks. sigh.
   i'm done ranting now.

How funny, I actually hate lefthanded desks. I've grown accustomed to sitting in righthanded desks at a slant, and have a nicely precarious way to set up my books. Having a lefthanded desks just throws everything off for me. I guess I just adjust to a righthanded world. Like scissors. I use righthand scissors in my righthand, but I guide the paper I'm cutting with my left.

I didn't even realise there were left-handed desks at my school until I sat down one day and noticed that my own precarious book-balancing system wouldn't work on it.  I think I made sure to sit at a right-handed, "normal" desk before the next class...force of habit.

Funny how we adapt.

I'm definitely interested in doing a lefty swap, but maybe after the holidays. What sort of items can be swapped?

I knit lefthanded, and I always get mixed up trying to follow righthanded cabling directions!
