Yes, looks like when you switched from knit to purl you put the yarn over the needle instead of between the two. You will knit a stitch, then bring the yarn to the front of the work BETWEEN the two needles, then do your purl stitch. It helps if you will learn how to recognize a knit and a purl stitch. Knit stitches look like little letter v's. Purl stitches look like turtlenecks on a sweater. Your work isn't bad for somebody who's only been doing it for a week. Don't feel bad. Every one of us has been a beginner at one time. You'll get it. Just keep trying.
