iv been learning how to knit continental and my knitting is really loose can anybody help me to make the fron t bumps formed by the first stitch in garter stich even?
Practice. That's it. When I tried conti, my sts were way too tight.... You just have to work out your own tension. It'll come!
I've been knitting for a year and just recently learned to knit with Continental style and am still in the practice mode...practice, practice, practice and then practice a bit more! As I have found is my general rule in all new :XX: techniques...
Try holding the yarn different ways. Many people hold the yarn completely differently in both their right and left hands.
Just a thought to comment on for others...is loose necessarily bad? there are times when it is definitley desirable not to have tight knitting. Couldn't she just use a smaller needle to get the gauge?
