I only crochet a little but even still I'm most comfortable with the hook in my right hand & the yarn in my left. I joined a group to learn how to knit & am finding it so awkward to hold the yarn in my right hand. I'm told there's a technique for holding it in the left, if anybody has any links to share I would so appreciate being pointed in a fruitful direction rather than looking at dozens of youtubez trying to find the right thing.
Thanks folks!

Yes, go to www.knittinghelp.com and look at the videos for continental knitting, or you can find many on youtube as well.

Thank you! I dont even know enough to figure out which words to search for. Hopefully I see a configuration that looks more comfortable for my hands.

ETA: the very first picture on that site is of someone holding the yarn in their left hand. I guess this is what comes of having a novice teach another novice, ha ha! Well, I'm glad I didn't spend too much time learning it the "wrong" way (for me) and having to break the habit and relearn it all over again.

Thanks for the link Smiley.

There is no 'wrong' way, and there's more than 2 ways to knit.

I'm glad there is more than one way or I'd probably not try it again, yarn in the right hand felt so awkward!
I've been wrapped up in swaps lately but I will get back to learning to knit, I would like socks by next winter Cheesy.
