I have taught myself to knit backwards!!! It saves so much time now that I dont' have to flip the project around. It's awkward when I have to purl, but when I'm working in garter stitch, its amazing!
It's perfect now that I've started playing around with modular shapes in a vaguely vision of a blanket. I say that because I know i will probably get tired of working on it so it will probably never actually become a blanket.
