hi,I am a new knitter. I'm teaching myself from videos (this site is great). I learned on straight needles but wanted to try circular needles for a hat. Problem is, I can't tell what stitch will be a purl or knit, even if i make a knit stitch, it will be a purl. Sometimes i get a knit stitch but when i put it down, it's anybodies guess what stitch I'll be making when i pick it up. I don't know if I'm picking it up backwards. On straight needles, knit meant knit & purl was distinctly different, but on circulars, i'm 90% purl, no matter what stitch i think i'm making. Does anyone know what i'm talking about? I even knit one row left handed, that's how confused I am. Thanks for listening.
