I wonder if a right-hander can teach you with a mirror??? Most shops offer classes...

You might find that since knitting is actually very bi-handed, that it is not much of an issue. I don't knit "American" style (wrapping the yarn by hand over the needle - very cumbersome in my opinion), and the Continental style actually uses the left hand a lot, and is much faster. The only issue that seems key if you learn 'backwards' is following patterns at tricky junctures.
Knitting is just wonderful, I hope you follow through! I knitted very
seriously for about ten years. I used to watched tv and knit, knitted while attending weekly meetings at Jamie's preschool, even did piece work and sweater assembly for a woman with a handknit sweater business. I stopped after while. My favorite store closed, I stopped watching tv after I got hooked on the internet (!) and it got hard to find patterns sized for me (I am petite). Of course, now you can find fun free patterns on knitting sites on the Web.
Right now, I am in a book reading and book-on-cd phase, but I know I will pick up the needles again sometime, since it is a truly pleasant hobby. I tend to like cables and complicated textures, and I have found that I can't knit and listen to books-on-tape at the same time...
Tell us what you end up finding, Allie! Even writing this post is whetting my interest, I hope you get inspired too!
