I just started knitting today, I bought a how-to book and some yarn and flew at it. I was able to cast-on easily enough and knit my first row without any problems. This is quite embarassing, becuase it seems so simple, but I can't figure out how to do the second row.
The manual says "to start next row, simply turn work around until opposite side is facing you, holding needle with stitches in left and and free needle in right hand. Knit stitches in same manner as on first row."
Easier said than done. When I put the knitted first row needle back to my left hand, the nubby end of the needle is closest to the ball of yarn, I would have to slip the new stitches over the nib rather than the point.
Any help as to what I did wrong would be appreciated.
