I think I've been knitting wrong for years and years!
I'm left handed, and I learned to knit when I was about nine by watching my ten year old sister head on. I'm not sure she did it right either. I've never been an avid knitter, but I've made about a dozen baby sweaters and several scarves through the years.
Last week I was in a yarn store and the woman who was helping me showed me a pattern for an easy lace scarf (similar to fan and feather). There was an instruction that I didn't understand: k2 tog t.b.l. She demonstrated what "through the back look" looked like. I realized that I have ALWAYS knitted through the back loop rather than through the front loop.
I think my knitting looks fine and I don't think my stitches look twisted, but now it's obvious to me that I knit differently than the rest of the knitting population. Will this cause me problems? Do I need to learn to do it correctly? I watched a couple of youtube videos the other day and experimented with trying to knit correctly, but it feels so incredibly awkward vs. the way I've always done it. Opinions? Help! Thanks.
