As for the yos, they won't have a little knot on the needle like the real stitches have. Just let them slip of the tip. It may look messy at first, but it will create a cool texture.
Brilliant, I think I get you in theory I will just have to see if I can do this in practice. To be honest I think I am just blindly going through the motions of each stitch without knowing the theory behind why each stitch is relevant or what sort of shape it means. I didn't even know that a knit made a V or a purl made a bump so that's go to be progress haha.

It's 3:25am here (time got away from me trying to figure it out I'm mesmerized by this whole knitting thing) so I will start again tomorrow with this fresh knowledge. I'll let you know how I go, thanks so much.
