The way I knit

I don't know! I've heard 'upside-down', 'backwards', 'I've never seen anyone knit like that before...' etc... and so far no one has convinced me they really know, only that they are confused too. My best guess is that it is continental - am I right?

So, can anyone tell by these one-handed pictures?

CarrieK: I hold the yarn and the project in my left hand and do the work with the right hand.

All pictures enlarge up to about 1200px when clicked.
I promise kitty pictures at the end!


starting out - yarn to left

picking up stitch, positioning yarn


pulling yarn through


pulling new stitch off

But which hand do you knit with? Your left or right?

Hmm, I can't tell from the one-handed pictures. Where is Mr J to take some pictures?!

I knit like that as well. I have been told it is continental and reversed. I knit opposite because I'm left handed. At least that is what my Grandma told me.

Not sure which style of knitting that is.... but.. really, is there a bad style of knitting?! :)
