From 1 to 2 circular needles?
I'm knitting in the round with one circular needles, but now I need to knit with two circular needles because of the decreases. How do I make the change from one to two circular needles?

I'm not exactly sure I understand what you're doing, but couldn't you just start knitting onto the second circ (off of the first one) for as many stitches as you need on the second needle?

What jane said is the way to do it; there's no need to transfer, just knit half your stitches with the first one.

I'm not exactly sure I understand what I'm doing either!! I've only worked with two circular needles from the very start at casting on half and half. BUT, I think with your suggestion to start knitting onto the second circular, I've been successful. It just was a different feel from starting off with two circulars. Thank you.
