Because the needles are metal, the stitches may slip off. Or that's what I've noticed while knitting with metal needles. Bamboo or wood "catches"--or so to speak--the yarn while knitting. That's pretty much the difference with them and bamboo or wood.

Really, it takes practice. Look at other vids on the web if one doesn't help. Try different cast on methods, too. And most of all, don't give up.
