I've been crocheting for years, but today is my first time knitting! Can somebody tell me if this is how it's supposed to look?
Also, when casting on, do you count the slip knot? There are 13 loops on this needle, does that mean that there are 13 stitches cast on?
I was using the tutorials at http://community.knitpicks.com/notes; it was kind of a pain because the "knitted cast on" attack assumed you already knew how to do a knit stitch, so I had to keep switching back and forth!
Any advice is welcome, and if I'm doing something wrong by all means tell me! Thanks a bunch!
