So, I'm knitting in the round for the first time, and something has gone ...strange. I think I must have twisted the cast-on row before I joined it, because now it's twisted in a way I can't untwist. It almost looks like a mobius strip. Has this happened to anyone else? Is there any way to fix it besides frogging back to the join?

This happens to plenty of knitters and it's not quite a mobius - it still has 2 edges. You can rip out to the first row, put the sts on the needles and make sure it's straight. Or start over again.

Oh! I pity you. This happened to me the first time I knit on circular needles...I had no idea that you had to keep the stitches straight when you joined. I was working on a sweater for my boyfriend and was almost 6 inches in when I realized I must've done something wrong and had to rip the whole thing out  Cry  As far as I know, you've just gotta start over and use it as a learning experience. I hope you're not as far along as I was!!!

The crisp pages of a book of classic literature-the warmth of a bright sunny day-the aroma of coffee brewing in the morning-the security of a lover's hand-the nuzzling of a purring kitty cat - These are the things that I love. These are the things that inspire me. http://www.brittnikayne.etsy.com
