Starting a new sketch

How does Inventor decide how to orient the axisis for a new sketch?  Sometimes, when I create a sketch on a face of a feature, the sketch sometimes rotates to an odd angle (Untitled.png).  I can create a sketch on a different, parallel surface and the sketch doesn't go to odd angles.  Why does Inventor do this?  How do I edit the orientation?  I've attached the part that I'm having the issue in.  When I try to create a sketch on the face of the loft, the x/y does things I don't understand. This happens often enough to be very frustrating.  I have work arounds, but I would much rather be able to fix the issue, or prevent it completely.

Yay! Tis [mostly] solved!
