I am nearly positive that there is an article on knitty about tension that talks about that extra tug new people tend to give when they first start knitting. I can't remember what it is called off the top of my head and thusly can't find it. Anybody remember the article that I am talking about?

Another discussion on tension geared toward both loose and tight knitters:

When I first read it, I thought she sounded a bit dogmatic, but it really is chock full of great observations and tips.

the first time i came across that article was only a month ago - long after i had started leaving out the fifth step. i wish i had found it earlier.

Thank you thank you! I have a friend who has just started knitting and can't figure out why her tension is uneven and it was entirely too early for me to remember what that article was called!
