How to hold your yarn .....  
Hi Everyone,
I have another question if you have time to respond. I signed up in my local knit shop for a lesson and the teacher told me that I should learn to hold my yarn at the top of my needles with my two fingers (thumb and index)holding the yarn as I knit.(Im right handed) She said this gives my work a more uniform look and I will have more control of my yarn. Im practicing, but I was just wondering if this is what most knitters do, or do you just do what is comfortable and be sure to pull some to make your stitches a bit tighter?
Just curious here what others do?
Smiles,
Dotty

i do not hold my yarn correctly AT ALL. it's so wrong, in fact, that other knitters can't watch me knit. but it's how i learned and is comfortable for me. i think it's kind of up to you, but usually using a "correct" method allows you to go faster and have more uniform tension. so i vote that it's up to you, but if you're already learning the new method it couldn't hurt to keep practicing it. :)
