I HAVE to crochet, eat, write - lefty. I can cut with a knife, iron wth either hand. Dial a phone and calculator - righty.

I am a Lefty - eat, write, crochet, etc. with my left. It was hard for my mom to teach me and took quite a long time.

 

Now what I don't understand, I bowl with my right hand. Weird.:shrug

i was born a righty... and i crochet with my right hand. when i knit i throw my yarn with my left hand... it's kinda like a left handed english, it's how i learned.

 

i've been thinking about teaching myself to crochet left handed b/c my right wrist gets really sore when i crochet or knit for too long mainly b/c my wrist tendons are held onto the bone with surgical twine as i managed to rip my tendons apart about 6 years ago. but i think it would be too much work and i'll default to my right hand (just like when i taught myself how to throw with my right hand when i knit... i gave it up and defaulted back to my left)

I'm right handed. I am slow enough with my right hand. I can't imagine trying lefthanded. Might get brave one of these days & try.

I have Donna Koolers Encylopedia of Crochet. They have diagrams for both learning Left and Right handed. There may also written directions I didn't notice. Could be interesting to see how many of us could learn on the opposite hand.

I am a leftie but crochet right-handed. My grandmother tried to teach me mirror but I couldn't get the hang of it. So, the only thing I do right handed is crochet. I married a man who eats left and writes right and yet both my children are right-handed. Go figure!

I do everything with my right hand. Oddly enough, my mom crochets right-handed, even though she's a lefty. Came in handy when she taught me...

I'm mostly a lefty. Actualy, I've found as I get older, I become more of a lefty. When I was little, I was prety ambi. So much so that I remember a time at pre-school where I changed hands because you color with the left and write with the right... It's amazing how silly people can be.

Being a lefty is tough when reading patterns sometimes. Especially when they try and explain rsc (going from left to right.... wait, I do that normally!). It also means I have to be careful choosing airplane seats if I intend on crocheting....
