Amy looked at the long scarf I made the first time I tried to knit (aborted due to thumb pain, now starting again [ETA: I mean I'm starting knitting again, not that the thumb pain is starting again! Knock wood!) and said every stitch was twisted! I'm not sure what I was doing (it was a year and a bit ago), but it was the way I thought a book I'd taken out of the library was telling me to knit... somehow I was inserting the needle backwards, I think.

I'm knitting the way Amy's English video shows now, and it's easier on my hands, but I have a 13-foot-long scarf that I did entirely "wrong" last year. So if I ended up with a scarf, I must have been doing something "right," I guess! :D
