    Since I'm left handed, when I learn a new handsewing technique
    I face the person showing me how to do it. Really works well for me to see it from that perspective. I've been trying to do a quilters knot, everything I have seen has been from the perspective of the sewer. Can anyone help me out by showing me in a few photos of what to do? Just as if I was sitting across from you. Maybe you could get someone to take the pics for you while you go through the steps. Please......................my knots are huge and ugly! :hunf:

    If youtube didn't help this is the way I do it, you would reverse it:
    left (string) over right (string)
    right (string) over left (string)

    Good luck!
