Flip your work inside out and move the needle so the tips are closer to you and the stitches and cord further away. The yarn going to the skein will still be on the right hand needle so just start in.

That is what I do for DPN and circ needle but when I do magic loop I do it the way the video shows and it is inside out. Is magic loop just suppose to be that way and does it matter?

Magic Loop is supposed to be the same as circular knitting, but with the cord pulled out on the sides. If you knit inside out with regular circular knitting, you might also end up inside out with ML too.

with circ knitting you have to have your needles with the working yarn closest to you. The same with DPN but somehow with magic loop (following Amy's video) it is inside out. Is there something I am doing wrong?

I just looked at the video and it doesn't look inside out, maybe it's just because there's only a couple rounds on the needle and hard to tell. But if you notice, the needle cable is always behind the tips and in back of her hands, so I don't know what you do that's making it different unless you have your cable closer to you and in front of the tips and your hands..

magic loop
I don't know, next time I will pay more attention to the way I do it. I think I am doing it her way but one never really knows.

Ms. Columbo, If you are getting twisted stitches while knitting in the round, you are probably wrapping your stitches the worng way. Try wrapping them opposite of what you have been doing and see if that helps.
