I am a combined knitter and can share this with you, you MUST wrap your yarn around the needles (or pull) the same way you do the knit stitch. And that is because of the way the knit stitch sits on the needle.
Even for us 'regular' knitters, the yarn is wrapped the same direction for both knit and purl stitches. It's only the direction (front/back or left/right ) that the R needle goes into the st that changes.

Anise, you're right, whichever leg is 'leading' or closest to the tip, is the one you knit into.
