If you do want to add purl rows, then my guess is that you have the yarn in back of your needles and are making a yo, or you're wrapping your yarn around your working needle and making a yo that way.
Make sure the yarn in in front of your work and that it's not coming around the back of your working needle.
Thanks so much for the quick response. I just figured out after I went through the heck to get the first couple rounds on that stockinette in the round creates just regular garter stitch. I wish the pattern had mentioned it. :(
Yes, I must be somehow yarning over. I have it in my head to switch the yarn to the front like when you are going back and forth between purling and knitting. I will give it a try the right way and see if that's what it is.
I'm sure I'll be around with more stupid questions.
