Re: adding a new (2nd) row

thanks heaps for the reply!! the case on I use is one taught to me by a lovely old lady in the wool store. she showed me to wrap the wool round my thumb twice, pull the rear wrap over the front one, wrap another loop round and pull the rear one over again. This made the slip knot. Is this the wrong one to use? you know how when you have case on all your wool and are starting the first row and the wool string attached to the wool ball thing is hanging from the first stitch? well, when it comes to the second row that string is back further and doesn't seem to be connected to anything. any idea what I am doing wrong??
