My daughter got some yarn and knitting needles from a relative for Christmas, but no instructions. I know how to sew on a machine, draw, paint, ect - but didn't learn to knit. However, I went on the internet today to learn so I could show my daughter. I finally sort of knitted something, but my hands hurt. I don't know how all those little old ladies do it (lol). Perhaps because I'm left handed and didn't try to reverse the instructions (use a mirror???) - that sounds even more confusing than just doing it right handed. Also, my daughter is right handed so I would have had to reverse it again to show her. Anyone here knit and find it ok on the hands?
