hi!! im valarie. i have been researching knitting for the past week and got my yarn and needles last night. i absolutely love that link form this board to knittinghelp.com, that place rocks!!

i already know ohw to cast on and then get to knitting the first row and such, but im having a problem...it's always too tight! i can't seem to loosen my original cast on and then as i knit the first row it gets even tighter. im not sure if it is just me or the needles or the yarn.

i got 5.5 needles and my yarn says worsted medium 4 (not sure what all that means) but it said that 5 & 5.5 needles would be used for that yarn and that is what i have....so i figure the problem is me

any tips or help??
