|Oh so true!|
I've been teaching a "Beginner Knitting" class on Tuesday nights. Tonight will be the last official class. One of my students is left handed. When I developed this class, I never considered I might encounter a left handed student.
Despite me, she is doing well! When I am instructing, I feel so disconnected reversing the directions... Sometimes, I knit directly facing her so she can see what needs to be done. I hadn't considered asking her to knit in front of a mirror-or maybe it's me who needs to use the mirror!
When I watch her knit, it just doesn't compute in my own head! But when I see what she has knitted, it's perfect.
I'm wondering if you have any sage advice for my student or myself... Have you ever instructed a left handed person? Are there any tips or tricks? I'd like to make certain my student gets all she can from the class and not walk away feeling cheated.
