Continental kitting question
If, when you long tail cast-on you are actually knitting the stitches onto the needle, could you then also purl them on?
I experimented with this and I think it works, but I am still very green and I can't really tell if I am getting a correct purl, or a twisted purl.
The way that I did this was by doing it backwards, and going for the yarn under the forefinger first, rather than under the thumb. Is this something that is done and accepted, and if not, is it because it is technically incorrect and can lead to problems later (like twisted stitches)?
