i just realized why my stockinette looks funny. one row of stitches leans and makes my st. st look like a pattern stitch.
after watching my mom knit, and amy's video again, i realized that i am wrapping my yarn the wrong way. unfortunately, if i correct this problem, i'm going to have to use more hand motions to knit. the way i'm doing it now, the needles do all the work.
i've had carpal tunnel surgery on both hands, so this is a big deal. i'm crushed. and i'm in the middle of 2 sweaters that i'm going to have to finish in this method before i start learning how to do it right, so my st. st doesn't look wonky.
just had to vent.
