I am having an issue. Somehow, when I knit my rows get longer and longer and I don't know why. I just started a dishcloth and began w/ 58 stitches. After a few rows I had like 65! So I tried knitting 2 together a few times, and it was ok, but then it kept increasing again. Is this a common problem? Has this happened to anyone else?

Yes! yes! yes! This is what happened to my dishcloth, too. I was doing a fancy pattern with yarn overs to make lacy holes and when doing the yarn overs I must have done an extra wrap (that equaled an extra stitch at every yarn over) because the top edge of the cloth was twice as wide as the bottom.
If you're doing a yarn ove between 2 knit stitches, just bring the yarn forward as if to purl between the needles to make the yarn over.
I really think dishclothes are hard. Even though they are flat. I had better luck knitting a round hat.

Ok, I have a total newbie question! I've heard not to work too close to the tips of the needles, as this can make the work too tight. So how far from the tips of the needle are you supposed to keep the yarn?

Anyone else having a problem with their gauge changing? I did a gauge swatch for my booties and the first one is right on, but my second one I was knitting faster on (getting bored with same thing) and have too many stitches to the inch so its going to be smaller. Darn. I have the problem of inconsistent gauge even though I do the darn swatch.
I am annoyed because my dd keeps asking for her booties but I doubt they will fit now. I could rip, but I'm more than halfway and that took me 3 days.
OK- that was my vent. I think if I had more time to knit I wouldn't be so attached to my results but I can only knit when kids are asleep or dh is home.

I have these grand ideas of a winter spent learning to knit in front of the fireplace ... my happy toddler gently (and quietly) playing at my feet ... : um, okay, maybe not ...
