I started with 36 stitches and now I have 43 after 41 rows. How did this happen?

Sounds like you did accidental yarnovers, split a stitch, you didn't drop the one you knit into off the needle so making two, or you knit into the first st of the row twice. Here's a FAQ (http://www.knittinghelp.com/forum/showthread.php?t=32886) with some ideas and suggetstions.

That's VERY common with new knitters. Check the link Sue gave. :thumbsup:
