sleeve increases on purl side
I am making my sleeve and I am to inc every 7 rows. So because it is every 7 rows sometimes I am on the RS and sometimes I am on the WS. I am not sure how to inc on the WS. And is there a right and left slanting inc for the purl side?

Go to the Decreases page and look at the ones for purl stitches - p2tog and SSP. With SSP you have to fiddle around with it to make the slant right, but it can be done and looks good.

increase on purl
I am increasing on the purl side. I looked at the videos and understand how to decrease(there are lots of ways) but I am having a hard time figuring out increasing on the purl side. I wonder if I should just increase every six rows and that way it can always be on the right side. What do you think?

And here I thought you wrote Decs, not Incs...

If you're making them at the edge or one stitch in, they really won't show because of the seam and they'll be on the side of the arm that doesn't get looked at much, so which way they slant doesn't matter as much.

purl inc
Ok, so I know it does not matter that much but I am hooked on learning and like to understand as much as I can about knitting and techniques. I just watched the video and from what I can see the MIB on the pic shows that it slants left looking at the right side. The MIF looks like it slants right from the right side. So when I am on the purl side and I did the MIB it looks like it slants to the right. In Amy's video when she is doing a MIB and MIL which is which on the right side?

I think they slant the same on both sides?

Sorry, I don't understand. If you are on the purl side and you make an increase that slants right, when you turn your work it slants left, the opposite becasue you are on the other side. On her videos I am not sure if she is demonstrating on how to do it so it slants the one way for the right side or the wrong side. In other words, If the MIB slants left and the MIF slants right is that on the right side or wrong side.

What I usually do when I'm not sure about such things is to try it out one way, and see what happens. If it isn't what I want, I just undo the stitch and do it the other way.
