I figured it out, the reason it doesn't look right to me is I am doing it oposite of what I was use to doing

I think so, I was always a good crocheter but never knitting and in less then a month I was able to pick up knitting right handed and they two days ago I was able to teach myself how to knit left handed..... Some one up there must really like me

I am so proud of myself, I am almost done with my dish cloth and will be starting another one and I did it all by myself and I had some very nice people to chat with on here along the way

That's great. Switching hands is a challenge, you have to be motivated. Now you can decide which hand should hold the needle most of the time. You might never have to purl on stockinette knit flat.

I thought your photos looked great.
