Or did I turn the needle the wrong way when I was trying to "snag" the thread? (I was admittedly trying to hold the needle differently, and would just like to know what I did wrong.) There are no gaps, no drops (at least, there are no "ladders"), and no slipped stitches. When I've dropped a whole row (or more) before and redone it, it doesn't look twisted.

When you re-inserted your needle some of the stitches may have been twisted the wrong way. There is a video here that shows you how to recognize when your stitches are not oriented properly, and how to fix them. There are also some good tips on fixing other mistakes as well.
