Sorry if there's an answer in here somewhere already, but I just joined and the search option gave me way too many pages!
I have a quick question about casting on and then the subsequent number of rows I should knit. I just started learning how to knit (from a book) and I learned the long-tail cast on ... however, I just read on this site that the long-tail cast on creates a knit row already. Does that mean if the pattern calls for 4 more rows of knit stitch, I only knit 3 more rows?
I guess that makes me a rebel, because I'd only do three! (Either that, or I'm just lazy!)
There is no right way to knit; there is no wrong way to knit. So if anybody kindly tells you that what you are doing is "wrong," don't take umbrage; they mean well. Smile submissively, and listen, keeping your disagreement on an entirely mental level. They may be right, in this particular case, and even if not, they may drop off pieces of information which will come in very handy if you file them away carefully in your brain for future reference. ~Elizabeth Zimmerman
