ok, I'm stuck. I'm knitting this adorable baby sweater
. I have the body of the sweater done, and am trying to wrap my brain around doing the sleeves.
I don't have any DPN's (and couldn't find any locally in the sizes I need), so using the video from here, I managed to knit a few rounds using Magic Loop
I think I have a firm grasp on the Magic Loop concept... could see how it mimics DPN's, etc. I have run into a bit of a problem, though.... it seems to be knitting backwards? Or inside out, I guess. I've got stocking stitch inside my sleeves, and the garter looking ridges are on the outside. Should I be knitting them inside out, or am I doing something wrong somewhere?
And my other question is about placing a marker. The pattern calls for me to place a marker at the end of the first row, and it'll be used later to show me where to make decreases. When watching the video on regular circular knitting, it's obvious to me where the end of the first row is, but I'm having trouble envisioning, using ML, where to place the marker in order to have it travelling around properly. I hope that makes sense!
