How does loose yarn get behind the knitting between caston and knitting?
Hi. I've watched some of the really great videos on the video page here. They've been a huge help. I've been able to knit a few rows and they're getting better, but they're awfully bumpy. So I watched the videos again and again and I can't see how I go wrong, but I do see that I have the yarn on top of the knitting instead of behind it. Practice will likely make my knitting less bumpy, but practice isn't going to reverse that particular problem. And I think that might be contributing to the bumpiness.

I noticed the "knit" videos start after a few rows are already on. Is there something that is supposed to happen between the caston and the knitting that I'm missing?

These things are hard to explain, which is why I love the site's videos so much. A picture is worth a thousand words and a video is worth a thousand pictures. But this is the best I could do.


Thanks.
