I hope you can understand this question...
What is it that I do wrong when I am casting on, that it makes the first row really hard to knit.
What happens is the piece of yarn between the needles gets longer and longer with every stitch knit, so that if I am knitting something with over a 100 stitches, I often end up in a mess because it's so hard to pull that long piece of yarn all the way through the next stitch and keep everything tangle free and even. I even got out my beginner knitting book that I haven't had out in years and tried casting on the exact way they said, and I still had the problem. The larger the needles I'm using the worse the situation is. Once I'm done the first row, if I survive it...lol...all is fine and it doesn't happen in any other row.
Thanks so much for any help you can offer. This is really frustrating.
