just starting and having problems with the purl stitch
Hello all,
I am on my second day of knitting, including yesterday when I bought my needles and yarn. I would love some advise about why my purl stitches seem to switch back and forth from side to side of my projects. I seemed to get the knit stitch down quickly, but I cannot figure out why my purls aren't all on the same side and are instead on the front and back of the project. Am I not holding the knit work correctly - so that I am flipping from front to back when I begin stitching the next row? I would really love some advise on this.
Also I just completed my first cast off. What should I do with the string at the end? Tie it?
