I knitted and purled, actually, and knit two together, and yarned over (yarn overed?), and bound off. I need to learn how to cast on still, because every time I tried, the knitting that came after it was sloppy and awful. What I did this time was just knit one stitch over and over, making a long string, and slowly added stitches until I felt the whatever-it-is was wide enough. So, basically, I cheated.
After a while, my stockinette started to look pretty good and even, but I think I'm doing something wrong at the end (or beginning, or both) of rows, because the edges are ugly, and the whole thing curls massively.
Advice on casting on, and what's supposed to happen at the end of rows?
