I've recently gotten into the habit of slipping the first stitch of every row, and I've been slipping knit-wise. Is there a general rule about slipping first stitches knit-wise or purl-wise? Always one or the other, or in pattern (i.e. slip knit-wise if the pattern calls for a knit and purl-wise if the pattern calls for a purl)?
Question re: slipping first stitches
