keeping consistent gauge throughout a project
Hi all,

I'm in need of tips from my fellow knitters to deal with a problem that I keep having. When I'm knitting a long piece (scarf or blanket), I always seem to end up with a project that's an inch or two wider on the BO edge than on the CO edge. Likewise, the rows nearer the CO are tighter together than those near the BO.

It's like my gauge gets progressively looser as I work and I have no idea how to fix it. It's not a question of working for long periods and loosening up because my hands are tired because for various reasons I can only knit for a shortish period (max 2 hours) at a time.

If anyone has any suggestions, I'd really appreciate it!

Thanks!
