Is this supposed to happen??
Ok, I am knitting in stockinete (might have spelled it wrong) and when I flip it over and start to do the purl side; I start the first stich, but it gives me two loops on my right needle! Is this supposed to happen? So far it hasn't been a bother, but I want to know now, if it will be; so I won't have to unravel my project and start all over.

Was your yarn in front before you purled? Maybe you accidently did a YO if the yarn was in back when you purled.

ETA: Also is your stitch count still the same or did you get an extra?

I didn't notice that! Opps, thanks for the help. I was doing a YO. I'll have to pull it back before I start. Thx!

When you begin the next row, hold the yarn out the side a little so you can see the first stitch. If you have the yarn up over the needle to the back, it pulls up the first stitch and makes it look like two sts.
