So, I've finally understood the pattern I'm using for my first friendship bracelet. I received one in the mail, and was making one to return to her. Hers is nice, and smooth and has no holes you can see through. Mine? Bumpy, the sides are wobbly, and there's small pinprick holes you can see through. I THINK I'm making the knots tightly, but can't think of anything else besides tension that would cause this problem. Any helpful tips would be appreciated!

It sounds like your problem is the tension between the knots. I'm assuming you're making the kind of bracelet that's a whole bunch of double half-hitches in varying patterns. The trick to keeping them even is making sure the knots are close together. When you're tying the first of the two half-hitches, try to get the knot to end up as close to the previous knot as you can, before you tie the next one - that should fix your gap problem. It should also help keep your sides straight.
