I began teaching myself to knit this weekend. I bought a How to Knit CD and a knitting kit from walmart. I am pretty good at casting on
, but the knit stitch is about to do me in. The problem is that when I begin to move the stitches from the left needle to the right needle, I get about a two inch string of yarn between the two needles. The yarn is connecting between the two needles. In the instructions, the needles stay close together as the stitches are moved from right needle to left needle. Is this string between the needles okay to have? I know it is probably to do with improper tension, but I just want to make sure I am learning correctly so that I don't get used to it and then have to correct it later. Can someone help me?
