Doing the Twist
I hate circular needles. I obsess over that critical join that will create a knitting disaster if every stitch is not in its place. Last night I cast on 330 stitched on a 32 inch, number 3 needle and then checked, rechecked, rechecked and rechecked to make sure that there was no twist before joining. I knit my first K2P2 row only to discover I had picked up and knit the wrong way. The anxiety producing join was never made. I had to go through the entire agonizing process again with black yarn no less. Tonight I have a good inch knit up. No twist.
