This sounds ridiculous but I hope you guys understand…
I am working currently on a cable scarf- and this is the first thing that the pattern of stitches really seem to matter and you can see them. (aka NOT Homespun Devil Yarn!)
I have just figured out that when I have to rip out a couple of rows to fix something (like a purl when I should have knitted), I can just put the stitches on any old way to the needle, then untwist them as I work them. I was actually untwisting them THEN working them, then realized knitting through the back loop does the same thing!
(LOL I know this is silly- but I am finally really recognizing the stitches and how they’re constructed now, which is pretty darn cool!)
