scraprn, could you possibly be doing repeated rows of your stitches. I mean, if you think you are knitting correctly but knit each row you will get a fabric that is bumpy on each side. And if you purl every row, even if you are purling correctly, you will get fabric that looks exactly like if you knitted each row.

To get a fabric that is smooth on one side and bumpy on the other you need to knit a row and then purl a row and continue that sequence.

Sometimes it is hard for a beginner to tell what is being made if you just look at one stitch.
