Question on beginning knitting
I've just taught myself knitting this month, and this site has been extremely helpful. However, everytime I knit, the last stitch on my row has about a 3 to 4 inch piece of yarn between it and the last stitch. It appears that this is created by the lax from knitting tightly. What am I doing wrong, and how can I prevent it??

Please leave a comment, and if no one understands what I mean, tell me, so I can be more specific. The only solution I've found is to leave my first cast on (the slipknot) off the knitting, giving me an extreme amount of yarn on the end.
