When you switch to the purl part of the ribbing, are you bringing the yarn to the front? I'm not an expert either, but I've seen this problem come up a few times with purling around here before. Wish I could help more.
Yeah, listen to Yellowness! You've created a beautiful seed stitch, instead of ribbing. It's just a matter of when you do your knits and purls.

"There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open."
— Martha Graham
I can't believe I didn't think of that! For some reason, when I started with the ribbing, I thought....as long as I cast on an even number, it will be right..LOL!!! And then it didn't even occur to me after all the trouble I was having!
Thanks everyone for the help, you guys are the best :D
No, I am not ashamed that I have a major crush on a man who dressed in tights and made faces for most of the 80's, and now plays a crippled drug addicted doctor...and is almost the same age as my father.
