Ok, so I have this white, homespun style yarn, a light bulky weight (if that makes any sense at all) is it totally fruitless for me to try to do anything but a garter with this for a scarf? I tried doing a seed stitch and it looked fine, but I wonder if I'm making the effort for no good reason. Then I attempted a twisted cable that barely showed up at all. I have frogged it completely until I get any further advice.
Second... on the videos it says to alway work the leading edge and that the leading edge should be in the front of the work...but whenever I do any combination of knit and purl I end up with the leading edge sometimes in the front, sometimes in the back. It's not an issue for me to just switch when working the leading edge, I just wondered if it was normal. And if it isn't, what in the world could I be doing wrong?
