I try to hold the needles together till several stitches are knit.

One thing to do is to always make sure the first stitch is a knit stitch. Are you ribbing?

Thanks for answering and No it's not the ribbining that really shows the ladder look.
Think I have solved the problem and that is I tend to take the next needle to soon to hold it in my hand out of the way which in turn forces that needle away from making a neat round (example) working needles 1 and 3 after a few stitches I tend to gather needle 2 and rest it between thumb and finger.

Oh good, glad you fixed it. I need to take a picture of how I hold them because you're not the first person to ask about this.
