Re: I've been winding my yarn clockwise instead of counter clockwise!!!


I believe wrapping counter-clockwise is often referred to as western style (popular in America/Europe), while wrapping clockwise is the eastern style (popular in Asia/Japan). No matter which way you wrap it is still a knit stitch.
And, btw wrapping one way on knits and the other way on purls is called combination style.
