Tension
I was wondering if anyone has pointers on evening tension? I knit slower than Amy does by far, but I've only been knitting for about 2 months (fast learner tho) I used to knit REALLY tight, now sometimes some rows are too loose and the 1st row is tight. Starting out, do I have to pay REAL close attention to this to make the tension even? I would hate to rip stuff up. Also, I hold the yarn the way Amy does with Continental and sometimes the yarn gets caught up stuck on my pinky after about ... I dunno, 5-10 knits? How do I fix this?
