Help with tension...
A couple years ago I posted about my tension problem. I was tightening too much, therefore making it hard to knit. I broke the habit for like a day, but then went back to my bad knitting ways lol. Yesterday I started a scarf and decided that this time I really am going to try to break my bad knitting habit. I'm doing great with the knit stitch, I finally found a happy medium of loose but not too loose, and the desire to tug on the yarn is barely there. But I keep wanting to pull the yarn a bit(not as as I used to pull!!) because the purl always comes out much more loosely than my knit stitches. I've tried a few different yarn holds, wrapping a couple extra times around different fingers, and nothing seems to really help. Anyone have any suggestions?? Thanks!!
