It's not so much your technique, but the nature of knitting in the round. You're not really knitting in circles, but rather in a spiral, that there is a jog when going from one row to the next.
"Trust the pattern!"
Time flies like an arrow, but fruit flies like a banana.
Hop aboard while we follow the cloud-covered van of knitting harmony, man!! Woooo!! --Hedgehog
