    I knit continental as a right handed person would and that works. BUT as a leftie I find it really hard to hold a tapestry needle in my right hand. What about grafting with the needle in your left hand. How does that work? I can find lots of examples where people actually knit "backward" but that isn't me. My yarn and rows end up where a right handed person's would.Thanks
