I was doing something with knitting needles, just not sure it could be classified as knitting.
RS vs WS is never an out there question. Some of us knitters have very non-standard holds on the needles with our hands or fingers, some of us knit on straight needles held beneath an arm or between our legs. Add English, Continental, & other styles for even more variation to the how to's. Figuring out what it should look like can be a challenge, so it was a great question!

I replied about kelley's sock class on my iPad, which I can use but not well so couldn't get the link in the reply. Now that I'm on my laptop where it's bookmarked here it is:

The Anatomy of a Sock video was what convinced me they were doable.

Thank you so much - that video looks exactly like what I need.

I just watched Anatomy of a sock, and will watch all the other videos in that class.

Now to learn about yarn...

Thanks again!

whoo...Hoo "A" Sock, my FIRST sock is completed. Thank you for the help!

One question, is slip, slip knit the same as knit 2 together?

here is the row I am referring to:

Row one: Knit straight across the first needle. On the second needle, knit 1, slip, slip, knit, and knit to the end of the needle. On the third needle, knit to within 3 stitches of the end of the row, knit two together, and knit the last stitch.

Both k2tog and ssk are decreases but k2tog produces a right leaning decrease and ssk produces a left leaning decrease. When you use them together on either end of your knitting, it produces a balanced look. You can see a video of ssk (and ssk improved) on the Glossary tab at the top of this page.

No they lean differently. Look on the Decreases page for both of them.
