I just started the Zeeby's Bag project in my copy of SNB, but whenever I start the stockinette stitch it ends up looking nothing like it at all, does anybody have any advice how to fix this?  I've started over 5 times already and I'm getting frustrated.

It looks like I've just done a basic knit stich except that some of stitches in the rows are raised higher, and it's pretty stretchy.  Does that explination even make sense?

Can you post a picture?  It's pretty hard to diagnose knitting problems from words only  Smiley

sounds like garter stitch to me... are you sure you're knitting on the "right side" and purling on the "wrong side"?

You should be okay if you knit one row, then purl the next, and continue like that. I think I remember doing something like you are describing the first time I purled. Just be sure you only knit one row of each stitch. It should be knit 1, purl 1, knit 1, purl 1, etc. Does that help any?
