Looking forward to seeing those photos!

Hi John!
Most of us have a problem with those rows being too TIGHT. It's interesting that yours are too loose. Just keep practicing, and you'll get better at making those rows look more consistent with the rest of your knitted item. Just pull the yarn a bit tighter as you cast on and bind off.

Hello! I'm going to copy your question to the "How To" section of the forum, so you'll get some help. You also should post a link to the pattern there, so others can know how to help you better.
