Circular Needles question
I am fairly new to knitting, the only thing I have finished is a hat that I did on straight needles. I am attempting to make a pair of longies on circular needles, but I have a quick question. Which side do I start counting from to put my stitch markers? Sounds silly to ask this, but I have gone along in the pattern and where it is now telling me to put my markers seems backwards, if that makes sense. Thanks!

I assume you are using two circular needles .... start counting at the beginning of the round.

I am just working on the body of them right now, so just one set of circular needles right now. Do I start counting the stitches on the left or right needle is really what I should have asked before. Thanks.

I don't think it's that critical as long as you're consistent. One extra row won't make that much difference on the majority of things.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
