Everyone has things they are really good at without trying. I guess we’d call them gifts. I am particularly gifted when it comes to travel and directions. As I’ve mentioned before I don’t need a map to get places. I have an internal GPS that gets me where I want to be and once I’ve been somewhere once I have no problem finding my way back even if years have past. Unfortunately I have a major hindrance that is related to giving directions or following instructions: left and right. Those two simple words that denote direction leave me fluster. If I am ever in the passenger seat of your car be warned: I have serious issues with telling left from right. I blame it on two things. First, I probably should have been left handed. I do many things like a lefty though I write with my right hand. That may have been imposed in Catholic school when I was 4. Second, when we were taught left and right in that same Catholic school I had a really hard time remember which was which and being told that you write with your right hand really didn’t help when my urge was to use my left. How does this relate to my knitting? Well, as I work on Ridgely with my 3 skeins of yarn being used actively in many rows I keep forgetting which way to turn my work at the end of a row so I limit the tangling of the yarn. I’m having to stop every few rows to untangle a big mess. At least the knitting is going along well and it only took one attempt to get this far along. Maybe by the time I’m half way through I’ll have that clockwise/counter clockwise left/right thing figured out.
