I am aware that the needle goes in the front or back of stitch. I need to clarify, both stitches, whether a knit or purl, the working yarn is wound counter-clockwise? (This could be why I was so confused last weeks KAL clue 2!)
I just always assumed if purl was in front and therefore different, that the yarn was also wrapped differently.
I have checked numerous different videos trying to be certain of this fact.
Seeing as I am still in the learning stages of knitting, I figure now would be a good time to clarify the two most basic stitches!

For some reason the purl stitches were much looser(odd because my hand hurt a lot more when practicing the purl). Is this normal or is there a trick to keeping the tension the same. Without feeling like your bones are crushing.LOL I was contemplating trying some of the squares from the KAL but I was practicing on cotton yarn with size 10 needles if that makes a difference.
