You've used yarn in making the extra stitches, so when you let them drop, the knitting is loose in those areas. It's okay, the extra yarn will adjust back into the sts around it when you wash the cloth.

When you switch from knit to purl move the yarn between the needles not over the top. Bringing it over the top of the needle is what gives you the extra stitches.
