Work the Slip Knot?

This is making my work uneven on one side it seems.
marking the end stitch helps, but I just need to know if you work the slip knot as you get to the end of the foundation chain or not. Does it become a stitch?

Well, when starting a chain, you start with a slip knot and the loop of that knot becomes the first chain. It would be worked.

But you seem to be making this slip not before each row? Are you changing colors? Once you have a row you should not need to make any more slip knots...

Do you have a camera and can you post a picture of your work in progress? Or if you can provide a link to the pattern (if it is one the web) or type in a brief quote of the part where it tells you to make the slip knot?
