Another gotcha is not getting both strands around the needle. It's easy to do, and you may not notice it until you get back to the same place on the next row/round. It won't actually HURT anything, but you might find a loose strand in the work that you can't tell where it's supposed to go. If it's on the inside/WS, it's no big deal, and it may not show even on the RS, but it's not something you'd actually WANT.
