I am right-handed through and through, except for crocheting. Everyone always told me I was holding my hook wrong.....no I'm not, I'm just a little backwards......:P

I'm a lefty, leaning towards ambidextrous.

 

I crochet and knit right handed. Although at SnB the other night, while knitting someone spotted that I'm a lefty, because I don't put my needle in the stitch, I put the stitch on the needle, if that makes sense (my left hand does the majority of the work)

 

All of my family and friends are right-handers and I've adapted to their world, but now I am buying things specifically made for lefties, a new bottle opener was a godsend recently, suddenly I can open the wine easily, I always used to fight with the right-handed one.

 

A new left handed tape measure, I never realised that I was stretching out the tape measure and then turning it round to read it, now it's the right way round first time.

I Love being left-handed. It confuses everyone when I try to show them how to do a particular stitch. Just kidding, lefty humor.:rofl Anyways, I'm a proud lefty. Self taught crocheter 'cause no righty could handle the job. More lefty humor:sofunny. I'm so glad they came out with universal stuff for us incompatibles.:woo. Ok, I've "left" the building :kick

I'm a lefty for writing and using most tools, etc. but having a right-handed family -- and living in a right-handed world -- I've learned to crochet and do other things righty.

Righty! But I do a lot of things with a lefty flair... when I'm stepping out to serve, etc. in sports, I have to step out with my right foot, etc. Coaches hated me for that one, but a lot of things I can't do righty like that - I lose my balance!

 

My sister (orangetulipgarden) is the only lefty in our family, and I think I might have been meant to be! lol ;):yes

Leftie!!! Proud of it too!! Took my parents forever to teach me to write. Then when I entered Kindergarten the teacher had enough nerve to smack me with a ruler and take my recess away unless I would use my right hand. I couldn't though partly because it was too hard and mostly cuz I'm very stubborn. My mom straightened the teacher out though!! It's amazing the fear a 5'2 woman can put in a person:D :D :D

I crochet left handed and knit right handed... i have been left handed my whole life and knitting is the only thing i can do right handed better than left handed. I tried to learn how to crochet right handed butit just flows so much easier when i crochet with my dominant hand.

I'm left handed and VERY proud of it, so is my husband which makes it easy at home :) Here's a weird thing ... my brother and his wife are both right handed, they have 4 kids - 3 of whom are LEFT HANDED! That is quite rare.

 

I crochet left handed, and actually am having a lot of trouble learning to do an adjustable ring for beginning crocheting a round. If any lefties have some tips for me I'd really appreciate it! Thanks :)

I'm such a klutz with my left hand it's a miracle I could even figure out how to hold the crochet thread or yarn! LOL!

I am right-handed and do everything right-handed, but I did teach myself to write with my left hand when I was in elementary school because I had a lot of friends that had broken arms and couldn't write with their other hand so I decided I was gonna know how to write with both hands so if I ever broke my right arm I could still write my name (silly I know).

I could use either hand okay when I started school, but my teacher said to just use the right. Now almost everything I do is with the right, including crocheting.

I'm right handed, and I do almost everything better with my right hand. However, if I'm on a bike and I want to steer with one hand it HAS to be my left. I can't control a bicycle with my right hand. :lol

 

I've always envied those who are ambidextrous..

I am right handed but should attempt to be left :D

 

I hold my hook like a knife so it should be easier....

Once a southpaw, always a southpaw, the only one in my family.

 

You know what they say;

 

The right side of the brain is controlled by the left side of the body. Therefore, I must be the only one in my family who is in their right mind. LOL!
