International Left-Handers’ Day
Today is the day to celebrate south paws across the globe. Left-handers have traditionally overcome a number of challenges presented in a right-handed world. Try using a pair of right-handed scissors with your left hand. Not as easy as it looks, is it?
I’ve found it a challenge, as a right-hander, to teach the craft of knitting to those naturally inclined to left-handed dominance. Check out this fantastic infographic portraying the finer points of knitting to the left-hander.
Give left-handed a go and celebrate the diversity among us!
