Hello. I hope someone will understand what I'm trying to ask. I look at some knitting out there, and the stockinette stitch looks like uniform rows of little (or big) " v "s. I've done a few beginner projects, and mine all end up looking like |/|/|/|/|/|/ instead of \/\/\/\/\/\/\/.
I am pretty sure it has to be about tension, but I don't know how to fix that issue. It happens to me whether I am kniiting in the round or just regular back and forth.

I am thinking that you might actually be twisting your purl stitch. I used to do that and mine sort of looked like that. I would watch Amy's purling videos and see if you are wrapping your yarn the same way she is. That's how I found out that I was doing that after MONTHS!
There is no right way to knit; there is no wrong way to knit. So if anybody kindly tells you that what you are doing is "wrong," don't take umbrage; they mean well. Smile submissively, and listen, keeping your disagreement on an entirely mental level. They may be right, in this particular case, and even if not, they may drop off pieces of information which will come in very handy if you file them away carefully in your brain for future reference. ~Elizabeth Zimmerman
