No, its tuff to explain and I'm sure its something I'm doing wrong so probably doesn't happen to you. After initial cast on I proceed to knit stitch and in between the two needles developes a line of yarn that grows longer with every stitch. It also has tension that seems to be related to newer knit stitch. So for my test its fine, doesn't get to much longer than an inch but for the afghan 252 stitches it was wicked long and I had to stop. try to picture the two needles should be close instead I have a long line of yarn in between. I have a digital camera if I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong I will take a picture and post it. Although that will only make it more clear how inept I am at this.
