I'm new to knitting.

I'm working on my first ever Elizabeth Zimmerman sweater. I got up to the armpits, split my work and started working up, in knit, and something was very, very wrong. I pulled it all out, went to my LYS and (tried to) explain what went wrong.

She assumed it was my purling and told me to just make a stockinette scarf. I did about a foot in the scarf brought it in and she's like "Oh." I knit backwards and purl correctly, so my stitches were twisted. She taught me to knit correctly but, since my in the round gauge and my stockinette gauge were vastly different, she suggested crocheting the neck. I have about 6 inches so far and it looks great.

I'll post a picture when I (eventually) finish it.
