One thing that I do, Susie, to tell the difference is to leave a bit of the tail from casting on, if that's on my right, then I'm doing the right side, if it's on my left, then I'm doing the wrong side. though I've found that it only works using straight needles, have yet to find out what happens with circ's. Hope this helps.

:thinking: I was under the impression that there was no wrong or right side in garter stitch.. I thought it looked identical on both sides.

Yeah, if it a simple garter scarf, then there is no right/wrong side

Yep.. no right or wrong side. IF the pattern asks you to do something on the RS or WS, just do it on the side you're on, then put a safety pin on that side to remind you which is now the RS or WS.
