Hi knitting friends! I just realized upon watching some more videos that I seem to be purling in the opposite direction from everyone else. I correctly position the right needle down through the front loop, with the yarn in front. But everyone else seems to wrap the yarn around counter-clockwise (or back to front) from there, and I realized I have been wrapping the yarn around clockwise (front to back) this whole time. The pic below shows the correct direction in green, and the direction I’ve been doing it in blue:
Are there any negative consequences to wrapping the yarn the way I have been?
I’ve created a few garments seemingly successfully so far, including ones with ribbing and seed stitch, and there seemed to be good definition between the purl and knit stitches, to my untrained eye. I’m only a few months into knitting though so I’m curious if my opposite wrapping will be detrimental down the road or with different types of patterns. I’ve included a pic of a vest I made below in case there’s any visual clues I’m not picking up on (I can take a closer-up pic later if anything seems suspect and you want a closer look):
