The intermediate project

So at last writing I was starting a project that let me explore something a little more complicated than simple knitting and purling. I was choosing between a sweater and a sampler scarf. I started working on the sampler scarf first because the yarn I wanted to use for the sweater was not in stock at my LYS (I finally figured out what that means).

Anyway, the scarf is going fine. I have learned to do a left twist, make bobbles, create open spaces by knitting multiple stitches into one, cable, and read what is a fairly complicated pattern for me. Honestly I didn't know how the scarf was going to look with all of the different patterns but they flow well into each other. Once I buy a knew digital camera (I was way too nice when I gave my brother mine to take on a trip to Prague; he returned, my camera did not.) I will put up some pics of what I have.

Question for you more advanced knitters: what is a turn? The part of the pattern I am working on asks me to turn and then continue knitting. I have a few books but none of them tell me what to do for this "turn?" What am I turning? The needle? The work? The stitch? HELP! I have no choice but to stop until I figure that one out.

Can some knitting super hero come to the rescue?

"Turn" would just be turn

"Turn" would just be turn the work

"wrap and Turn" usually invilves bringing the yarn forward, slipping a stitch, and bringing the yarn back; then turning the work.
