I purled :P
I'm attempting to knit arm warmers in the round and as such, have finally purled. :P You guys can quit nagging now.

Me as well, I was one inch from smacking it!!! I was like that too when I started to knitt. I was scared at doing my first purl, and I ended up doing it!!! Even little tiny steps can be actually huge ones in life.

A Purl by any Name...
Is just a knit made from the wrong side of the fabric.

I've tried knitting in front of a mirror, but the man in the mirror was left handed!

Perhaps if I setup my camera on a tripod and knit in front of a mirror, then view the video reflected in a mirror?

Danke shane. Yes, that was my point exactly. Though I guess I didn't express my idea clearly enough to evoke the schadenfreude I intended.

Yay! Congrats! I had a related victory as well, I did the reverse purl wrap for ribbing, it really does tighten up the loose ribbing I had.

Any step in the road is a good one. But this is abig step. You have thereby opend up endless possibilities and combinations.

Become comfortable with the purl and then pick your next target. But practice comes first!
