Hmmm....it sounds like you're purling instead of knitting. The back of the stitch will look like a purl. Have you watched the videos here?
http://www.knittinghelp.com/video/pl...al-continental this is a close up view of the same thing http://www.knittinghelp.com/video/pl...titch-close-up. Both are from the Free Videos above, Getting Started.

I knit Continental also, after years of crocheting. Have you tried English style? Some crocheters who learn to knit prefer it, I still don't have the hang of it.
