To get the most out of these boards, before posting a topic, we suggest:

Scrolling through past posts to see if your question has already been asked and answered. Postings are in chronological order of the date when the topic was first posted. You can also use the SEARCH function to look for past posts about your question.

If you don't see your question addressed, or if you have additional questions, post a New Topic rather than replying to an existing topic. This will increase the likelihood of getting responses to your specific question. Also, try to describe your specific question in the topic subject line rather than "New Knitter" or "Help."

The more information you can provide in your question, the better the responses.

We hope you enjoy the postings on this board and will come back to share your knowledge with others.

To add to MH's advice, hold the fabric with that last row facing you and when you affix the pin or piece of contrasting yarn to a stitch on that row, place it on the part of the stitch which is facing you rather than through the whole stitch. That way you will immediately see which is the "right" side rather than having to count rows to determine it.
