thanks!
KK, your description is great. I will check out amy's videos as well.

The book recommendation (learn visually) awesome! and not costly.

:XX: This one stitch has stopped me in my tracks more than once! But, no more!

I'm not certain that I can yet visualize the stitch in question. I just learned the twisted knit stitch last week (thanks to helpful souls here )for a hat I'm making.

:?: From what it sounds like you're all saying is that a twisted purl stitch is performed exactly the same as a twisted knit stitch with the exception that you bring the yarn in front first. Is that right?

No. If you do a knit with the yarn in front, you'll get a yarn-over stitch--extra.

You bring the yarn in front. Then your right needle goes around the back of the left needle. You go through the back loop of the stitch from left to right, wrap as you would a purl, and take it off.

Doh, of course.

I think it's a learning disability for me, and is why I am struggling so hard to learn to knit. Somewhere between the reading and the doing, wires cross for me. I can pick up most anything in a hurry if I can see it done.

This demonstration is to teach how to do a Twisted Purl Cast On, but I think (hope) it is demonstrating what you are saying to do?

Okay, that links to the same pics as the link I posted. The page I linked to, though it showed the same pictures, was to teach how to do a twisted purl cast on, so that's why I wasn't entirely sure it was performed the same way for a simple twisted purl stitch, but I now see that it is.

Thanks, Ingrid!
