That looks great! The best thing you can do is keep practicing. Your tension will even out over time. Cast on again and practice knitting and try purling and mix it up. You can even making a fun scarf that way. I don't usually recommend scarves as they can get quote boring, but it doesn't have to be a long one..Play with the stitches in different rows, within one row, ribbing, etc you'll learn a lot.

Uhhhh, I'm saying the same thing you're saying, but I'm pointing out how the error is made in the first place rather than how to fix a mistake AFTER the fact! Which is also important to know, I'd think!

Okay. I did tell her why as well...she didn't complete the stitch properly. She figured it all out with all our help.

Thanks for the kind words everybody. I'm progressing, but slowly. Last night I tried knitting a coffee cup cozy and I was doing really well until I started to knit with the tail end of the yarn instead of the working yarn. Trying to fix it just buggered it up worse, so I yanked it off and threw it out. Practice, practice, practice...
