Hi All! This site started my off in knitting about 3 or so years ago. I put down the needles for a bit, but have picked them back up recently!
Well, I've made a few swatches and am finding a very irritating problem is cropping up. I've tried to search for solutions in old posts and even found mention of it in one of the great videos...
When I turn my work (on either straight or circs) the first stitch ends up being VERY loose. I've tried keeping it extra tight, using smaller needle for the first stitch, but it still ends up loose.
One of the videos said to slip the first stitch if they tend to be loose. That helps, but still doesn't give me the nice even edges that I see in all your wonderful photos!
Any advise would be great!
