1) is it only for the 'using a cable needle' version that you have to worry about twisted stitches
2) when I am ready, how do it take out the waste yarn? In Amy's video it shows knotting the waste and main yarn together. What end do you pull on to undo the waste yarn part without undoing the main yarn stitches?

If you use Amy's and it works, please let me know! I can't figure it out, even though it looks super simple.
