When I started knitting again a few years ago, I was pulling what I remembered from my childhood years, when I was taught to knit at School?? That seems really odd to me, I don't actually remember learning in class but a school friend and I were knitting together and her Mum who didn't knit bought us each a lovely ball of Yarn Mine was caramel coloured. We would knit and compare at her house after School I think we were in year 1 or 2. Ahh but I am off on a tangent now, a trip down memory lane.

What I was actually wanting to say was if you look at the above image you will see some tiny brown crosses that I digitally added around the middle of the photo. If you look above these you will see my knitting is 'casual' it has a wriggle to it no matter how I tried I could not knit lovely straight uniform rows of stitches like the ones I admired in other peoples knitting. Then look below at the lower portion of the hood ... Ta da ... I got it. I had been knitting into the wrong side of the stitch!
Though You tube tells me I am knitting into the wrong side of the stitch now... ? Maybe I am also purling back to front! lol. In any case my rows are smooth and straight now, not twisty and casual and I worked it out all by myself!
