Rrrrrridges

Swatch Lisette has ridges.  Bitch.  What the hell am I talking about.  When I knit stockinette flat, I get ridges because my knit and purl rows have different tension.  I think I purl too loose.  You know, loose purls sink ships.  Is my only alternative to purl with an even SMALLER needle?  Please don’t tell me that…

My swatch aka the back of Lisette, is knit flat and must be knit flat because of the garter side and front panels.  I’ve been knitting since the year one and it seems that I should be able to knit some decent stockinette flat.  The aforementioned ridges are most pronounced when knitting with tiny needles (2s in this case) and sproingy smallish yarn (the lovely Rowan 4 ply Soft).  What’s a girl to do?  Any suggestions…
