I've managed to do most anything from "backwards" to me patterns since there aren't many southpaw patterns or tutes out there. I just start from the other side. In most cases I just prefer a written pattern unless I need to see something specific about a new technique at first like the tunisian. CrochetGeek and Bethintx both do good vids on youtube although I think all of bethintx tutes are right handed she explains thoroughly and I can convert the processes to mirror left handed because I'm usually looking for a specific answer in the videos as to technique as opposed to the total pattern for the project. Thanks for the welcomes and info Ann, Deb and Katey. I don't think I've heard of nerdigurumi before I'll have to check it out as I'm always looking for new ideas.
