Twisted Garter Stitch
I cannot figure out how to do the twisted garter stitch. Does anyone have a picture of step by step on how to do this one.

I don't have anything with me. But any twisted stitch is normally just knit or purled through the back loop of the stich. Do you have written instructions?

I do have written instructions, but I'm fairly new at this, and I'm a visual learner. I'll just bump my way through. Thanks

I looked it up, and it is basically doing regular garter stitch (all knits), except you're going to through the back loop. Amy has a video here. Look under k tbl (stands for knit through the back loop). If you're doing flat knitting, just do all your stitches that way and you'll end up with twisted garter. (If you're knitting in the round, you'll need to alternate knit rows with purl rows.)

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
