I am a 64 year old great grandmother, who plays golf, and loves to felt wool purses and Christmas stockings. (Now if I could only find a market.) When I have a rather tall project in stockinett stitch, I find that it torques to the right, and when I felt it, I have a hard time pulling it into shape, especially if it has handles that are felted right on the purse. Is this a common problem, or is it purely in my knitting technique? Please help.
