It takes a while and practice before your tension becomes consistent. Keep at it and you'll be amazed at how quickly it improves. I know I was. My first few attempts looked terrible but I just started a long scarf and kept going until it was looking better.

You could see the improvements as the scarf continued. That's why I recommend a scarf as a first project so you can actually see how you're improving. It also makes for a really funny looking scarf.

Try a long tail cast on and see if you like it better.

What do you mean guys don't knit?

Perfection is overrated. Knitting is meant to relieve stress, not cause it. Relax and enjoy it.
