My Kinda Purl

I apologize in advance for those of you who don't knit in the continental style - if you knit with the working yarn in your right hand, this tutorial will still work, but keep in mind that you're holding the yarn differently.

I refuse to apologize for All Knitting All the Time. Well, ok. But only a little.

1. Insert Stick. Yarn in front of work.

2. Bring yarn under and around the stick, back to front.

3. Push yarn through stitch on left stick. Much the same way you do a knit stitch. Only you're pushing instead of pulling through.

4. Pull the stitch off the left stick. That's a purl!

Okay I have done all that you did except I didn't really get the pushing not pulling part. How do you get it off the needle? I thought it was almost like binding off but of course that didn't work for me.

Man, I sound stupid. I will just have to try it again with your pictures to guide me. THANK YOU for your help!
