how to get only a few stitches on circular needles?
OK - I am almost done with a baby hat, that looks great on the brim and up the crown to where it starts to really decrease. I think I have about 18 stitches on my circular needles now and it's supposed to go down to 4 eventually, but here's my problem: How on earth am I supposed to get so few stitches to "reach" as far as they need to on the needles, like from one end to the other when I transfer the knit stitch onto the right needle?? Does that make sense?? I am starting to have major problems and am just fighting with the darn thing, so I thought I'd better take a break and look for some advice....let me know if my issue needs better clarification.
