21. I knit both ways. I love the German style of

holding my yarn in the left hand. It's just a matter of practice.

For some things like casting on for which you need a tight grip, I hold the yarn in my right hand. I also hold it on the right for things like some of the cable stitches and then switch right back to the left hand.

Holding the yarn in the left hand is faster.
