Also, soon I have to switch to larger needles. Is there an easy way to do this, so that I don't drop a stitch or anything??
Thanks everyone for helping me with this!!
I may not be the best person to answer your questions, but here goes!
Normally your cast on is the WS (wrong side. So, your odd stitches are your RS (right side) and your even stitches are your WS (wrong side)
Usually the directions will specify what is the wrong side and what is the right side.
Just mark the right side with a small safety pin. Usually the gold ones that come with your dry cleaning are pretty small and easy to pin.
When you switch to larger size needles, you don't have to take it apart to transfer. All you have to do is get one of your larger needles and knit onto that one with your smaller ones. Once that is done, you have switched.
Hope that helps and if I am wrong, please let me know, that is how I would do it.
