short rows knitting then purling
I am following a pattern that calls for a wrap and turn on the knit side, and purling back after turning... my yarn is set to knit, how do i begin to purl as this does not complete the wrap process. Thanks so muchly!

Doing w&t your yarn should be in position for purling. Check this video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xe6OlMna3zQ

W&t gives me a headache. There's just something about it... You might want to consider a different method. Currently I prefer German short rows. You might save these videos for a later date if you find it confusing right now.
German Short Rows Part I - Purl to knit
German Short Rows Part II Knit to purl
Yes, I learned about this method right here at Knitting Help.
