Ya know I picked up this little tip from the Knitting Christmas stockings book (ya know that book that looks like a sock? Check it out of the library) Anyway she says whe you've got all your stiches cast on, the working yarn on the right needle, then with the right needle slip the first stich of the left hand needle onto the right hand needle then pick up the next stich off the right hand hand with the left needle over that first one you slipped. SO basically you're just swaping stiches. Get it? I use this meethod when working in the round and it works very well. Good luck.
