Hi Susie!
It sounds like your edge stitches are just a bit loose... that is totally natural when you're just starting out! One thing that might help is to slip the first stitch of each row... that means thatyou put your needle in, but instead of wrapping the yarn and making a new stitch, just pass it from the left needle to the right w/o making a new stitch. That should help neaten up the edges. HTH!
