Manual practice

I am really getting into using my camera manually as I should. I have been reading and re-reading a camera book I purchased over a year ago trying to understand. And, I feel like I'm starting to get it!
So, here is an attempt to take some pictures at low light. (I am talking out loud here if this makes no sense). I used my lowest aperture (f/1.8) and dialed my iso up to 1600 (highest setting). With the aperture dialed high, I am letting more light into my camera, and my increased iso hopefully helped take away some of the grainy look that I usually get with lower light.
What I haven't figured out is how to dial down my iso and increase my shutter speed (I haven't figured out how to change my aperture and shutter speed at the same time - I can just do one or the other).
The pictures are good, I think. They aren't as clear as I would hope. I think if I had gone a little higher with my aperture it would have helped.
I have a great model, don't you think?
