What does one knit stitch look like?

A knit stitch (which you would have purled on the other side) just looks like a plain piece of yarn looped over the needle in a V shape, while a purl stitch has a little bump at the bottom. When you turn your work and are ready to start the next row look at the stitch you are about to work.

THIS IS EXCITING:  Should I outline my embroidery?
