adding a new (2nd) row

firstly please let me appologise if this has been asked before. I started knitting today (i know i know but you have to start somewhere right!) and am having an issue. I don't know any knitters to ask so here I am. I can cast on fine and can do the first row of knitting, but when I get it all on to the first needle and attempt to start again on the other needle i totally can't do it. i try and mimic what I did with the first row but can't even get one stitch out. the wool becomes loose. it's like the first stitch i try and put the right needle under is nothing like the first one when I did the first row, but the rest on there is fine...sorry I can't be more specific but it's hard when you have no idea what you are talking about at the same time :-) if anyone can help me I would very greatly appreciate it!!!
