Getting Turned Around (Purl Bumps on Outside) on Magic Loop
KnitFreedom student Mari had a great question:
I just started my first sock two days ago, and I have noticed I'm inside out, but I'm still a little confused.
Somehow, my toes are right side out, and the rest of the sock is inside out.
I'm just wondering what I did so I can fix it next time around.
When You Get Turned Around The Wrong Way on Magic Loop
Mari's problem was that she got turned around - that is, she didn't come back to ready position before she kept knitting.
This is a common Magic Loop mistake, and I'm so glad she asked, because now we all get to learn from it. Here's a video showing how to fix it.
Mari also said,
Since I'm confused and I don't want to stop knitting, I've decided to just keep going with it inside out. I'm not really worried if it looks weird this first time around - I just started learning how to knit this Halloween.
What a great attitude! This is a wonderful way to treat yourself when you are learning something new. I love her attitude and we can all learn something from this.
