Hi I am brand new to knitting and have only finished one real project since I started. My question and frustration is with my next pick of yarn for another project. I know its a user error but I cannot figure out what I am doing wrong so I am asking for help from more experienced knitters.
I have three balls of aMAZEing yarn in bright yellow and want to make a scarf and hat. it is %100 Corn Fiber and very stretchy. I cast on and when I try my very first row, it starts out fine but as I progress the length between my needles keeps growing and growing so by the time I am at the end of the row, my needles may be 5 inches apart! I cannot figure out how to adjust it, and I dont think I am pulling tight at all. I have torn it out and started over several times and am about to give up on this yarn all together! But it really is pretty and I want to learn to do it right.
Am i using too small needles? I am using #7 bamboo circular.
I appreciate any help you can offer!
