i will try to get pictures up later as i am out the door right now....
i literally just started knitting last night (see my post in the general knitting>>introductions thread for that story)... through the SUPER INFORMATIVE videos here and youtube, taught myself how to cast-on continental, knit and purl and M1F... but i'm having problems with what i think is the tension.
how tight are your loops supposed to be when you cast on and when you knit???? i do realize there are loose/tight knitters, and i think i would prefer to knit tight.
my problem is that i do the long tail cast on, and then knit one row, but at the end of that row, i'm left with a LONG loop
... like all the slack from the entire string ends up in that last loop
... is it my tension that's wrong?? any suggestions on how to fix it??? TIA
