Messy, Messy Ballbands

Maybe it's because I'm sick with whatever creeping crud is going around, but the edges of my Ballband Bibs are seriously deteriorating. The tension is terrible, strange little loops are popping up, and I can't seem to be able to carry the color I'm not working with up on the purl row. What could I be doing wrong? Even my very first attempts at a Ballband Warshcloth are not this bad. Hmmm.

PS Dear Knitpicks: Please get some CotLin back in stock soon! I want to make hand towels without coughing up $20 a skein for Euroflax!

I am guilty of splurging on the linen- twice.
