Thanks for all the help, guys.
I bought a knitting starter kit as a present to myself, and everything seems to be going well. I'm working on a washcloth. Or rather, stitching a bunch of things in a square shape that will eventually resemble a poor washcloth. Lol.
It took a while to learn even just to get a slip knot done correctly. But I've got it down now along with the cast-on and knit stitch. Knit stitch took forever to learn, until I watched the video on here! It just clicked after that. Now I'm attempting the purl stitch, and I'm not sure how well it's going yet.
However, I was wondering: Why in the world does it keep getting smaller? The further I go, the more the bottom gets closer together, and instead of a square, it starts looking like a triangle. Help?
