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?

Hold your yarn in the way that works as you are learning, you'll correct yourself and find a method that works for you. I started off all awkward but as the years went on I found a system that works for me and causes less hand cramps. You will too!
