Knitting too tight?
Hello, and best regards all!
I am interested in getting into knitting as a way to expand my horizons into something of the creative realm.

I decided I wanted my first project to be a scarf.

With the help of this website's videos I was able to learn how to do the double cast on (a technique I could not pick up by reading alone).

As I attempted to knit, however, I ran into a problem! As I transferred my first loop from my left needle (bearing the casts) to the right needle, I noticed the thread between the needles was very tight, and by the third loop I was physically unable to thread another loop. I am sure I am making some basic mistake, but any advice is appreciated!

My needles are 10 and 1/2. And my thread is 4 ply.

Thanks in advance!
-Jeremy
