Hi. What Ingrid said. If the rest of your stitches are looking pretty even, you're doing great! Welcome to the wonderful, crazy world of knitting. I and many others crocheted first also. I started knitting because knitted socks and sweaters are generally more to my liking.
Cheating is an option. . . . Cheaters never win and winners never cheat, but smart knitters who want to retain an iota of sanity do, cheerfully. ~~Kory Stamper
