I hold the control in my left hand but can use either.  However, I use a 
vertical control that is a cross between a Czech and Salzburg type.  I do 
not have a separate bar for marionette walking.  That is right on the 
control.  I prefer to use my free hand to work the puppet's hands for 
gesturing - and grabbing extra strings.
