I'm having trouble keeping the same tension on all my cast-on stitches. I usually use the long-tail CO method which I like a lot, but I always seem to end up with some stitches looser than others and others too tight. I saw a video that said that the cast-on stitches should be loose enough so as to be able to grab them at the bottom and have some space showing through below the needle.
I'm considering casting on a larger needle then switching to the smaller one I'd use for the rest of the project.
My knitted stitches aren't too tight now that I just let each stitch slip to the right needle, but the cast-ons are difficult for me.
Anyone have any other ideas, or am I just being too perfectionistic?
