Lefty/Righty/Lefty
Created By: Angela Toland

I am left handed! There I said it! Not only did I try to peddle my first bicycle backwards, I had tried to do just about everything else backwards when growing up.



My grandmother, who was a very talented knitter, crocheter, seamstress, etc decided that trying to teach me to crochet would be a good way to help me adjust to a "right-handed" world. When she gave me my first crochet hook I automatically put it in my left hand. Since she was right handed, there was no way she could teach me unless I conformed to the "right-handed" way. After a few lessons, I began to get the idea of right handed crocheting and took off with it. I've been croceheting since I was ten (thanks to grandmom). She next taught me knitting the right-handed way, but when it came to embroidery, or sewing of any kind, I just couldn't master right handed. But my grandmother wouldn't let that stop me. She kept encouraging me to keep at it. I'm so glad that I did. Not only can I use my left hand, I'm also able to use my right hand for so many things that I do. It's really helped my adjust over the years to the "right way."



Over the years I've made many wonderful gifts for family and friends. When my children were young and money was tight, it was a good way to make clothes and sweaters, etc for them.



However, I still try to peddle backwards!
