I guess it's how you hold your work. I knit on the outside, but the tips are at the top; the bottom and my knitting sit in my lap. Basically, the tips are closest to me.

Well, the knitting lays in my lap too. The tips of my needles are closest to me too.

Some people knit at the top of the circle, with the "open" part of the hole facing themselves, so the right side of the garment is on the inside of the hole. You're holding it with the "open" part of the hole facing out to the the rest of the room.

You and I knit exactly the same.

Yeah, we do. I just never thought of calling it the `bottom' of the circle. It's all semantics....

It's hard to describe how we knit with just words, isn't it?

I've been knitting for years, and I've learned a couple things from the videos.
