My stitches are never even and I was hoping to make things I could sell.

My question is, is tension a common problem for new knitters? Or does
it just plaque some ppl. Will it eventually work itself out by practice or
should I start forcing myself to use another 'holding' method?

:D I had that problem, when i held my yarn in the left hand then i tried knitting english style (i think, i hold my yarn in my right hand) and the tension is almost even exept with those knitted-too-tight stitches. So if anyone please hve any other advice...
