Really Stupid Question? lol
Ok, this may be a really dumb question, but I'm going to ask anyway...I'd rather ask a stupid question than make a stupid mistake...lol...So, here it is: You're working on something, let's say you're doing rib stitch...Let's say also you slip the first stitch...Does slipping count as your first stitch? If you're doing k1, p1, does the slipped stitch count as the first knit stitch, or, do you disregard the slipped stitch and still start with a k1? Thank ya, guys!

If you're seaming it, then it wouldn't count. If you're not seaming it, it's really up to you and how you like the way it looks.

Whichever you want. If you slip the first and then start k1 p1, it should look about the same as if you slip the first and do p1, k1, p1. Here's an idea - try it both ways for a couple inches and see which one you like.

I usually slip the first stitch in every row to form a neat, tidy edge. Because it is such a slim stitch width-wise I never count it. I also just automatically add 2 stitches whenever I cast on so that the 2 slipped stitches don't interfere with the pattern.
