Thank You, Tube

I have been making myself insane for the last several hours by trying to learn to knit a rib stitch. I thought I knew how to purl and apparently I thought wrong. I googled up "k1 p1" and found this on YouTube. I wasn't bringing my yarn forward for the purl. No wonder it looked so messed up!

Hello socks! I may be able to knit a pair of you after all. I had nearly thrown in the skein.

Check it out -- my learning swatch:

PS: Remember my one and only New Year's Resolution? Broke it already. I'm glad to get that failure out of the way early in the year.
