Being a left handed knitter I am at the more then frustrated level of trying to find someone that can explain how to do the wrap and turn stitch, as mygrandchildren want the funky, fishy hat, which calls for that procedure. My learning comes from watching and repeating, better known as a kinesthetic learner, and no matter how many times people who are right handed have tried explaning it to me, it hasn't worked, as the do this by email.
Have searched high and low for a tutorial on the Internet, and could not locate one.

I have found TechKnitter's blog really helpful. This is her blog entry on short rows. I don't know if being a left or right handed will make much of a difference. It is more important that you see how the technique works. I'm a combination knitter, which means my purl stitches result in left facing knit stitches instead of right facing. I've learned to knit in the back of the loop instead of the front. Here is the website. I hope it helps.
