Twist Stitches

Yarn:  Cephalopod Yarns Skinny Bugga! in Flamboyant cuttlefish

This is what I seem to be spending most of my time knitting.  This and 2 test knits.  What gets me is the twist stitches.  There is a yarn over (YO) that you drop.  The design is to make long stitches.  What happens is try to knit the YO rather then the stitch.  This is hard to correct without ripping back.  Which isn't fun.  Sometimes I can pick it up and fake it.  Other times if your stitch count is off it doesn't twist right so that is when I have to rip back.  I just need to take my time and make sure I have the stitch and NOT the YO.
