I have been knitting for a while now, but am just now coming up with this problem. I go ahead and cast on, and start knitting my first row, but when i do that the slack between the two needles gets so long, that by the end of the row I have this HUGE loop as my side. I need someone to tell me what i am doing wrong. I keep starting over, and keep getting the same problem. Right now I’m just trying to knit squares to make my niece a quilt.
