NOT that I'm a good knitter, but I just read about that and it was suggested to slip the first stitch rather than knitting it. In other words just take that first stitch after you turn your work and move it from your left needle to your right without doing anything to it but "slipping" it. Your next stitch on your left needle will still be your second stitch
So you'd: SLIP, KNIT, PURL, PURL, KNIT, KNIT, PURL, Purl, etc.
that post with before slipping and after samples of slipping the first stitch.
