The first thing I always say to people who get upset at not having any sort of 'real' way of knitting is as long as you're happy with it, what's the problem?
I get it now. I just learned that ever since I started knitting, I have been twisting my knit stitches. You would not believe how annoyed I am. Now that I've done it 'right' I hate everything I have ever knit in stockinette.
