Thank you so much for answering. I do take my free needle and knit into the 1st stitch on my left needle.
Maybe I am not holding the needles correctly. Say I have 4 needles. Needel in right hand with working yarn is at the top of the circle along with the left hand needle. The working yarn is coming from behind the needle. I wrap it around my point from behind the right needle as well. Is this correct.
Also, my WY needle and left hand needle are at the top. Should they be at the bottom of the circle. Everyone keeps saying work the needles closest to you. Should I spin the circle or something. I swear I am not trying to make this hard.
