switching circular needles
Ok, folks, if I'm knitting in the round and the pattern calls for me to switch to larger needles halfway through, what's the best/easiest/most painless way to do that? Thanks!

when you get to the end of your round just start knitting onto the bigger needle. it will feel a littl crazy with that extra cord there for a bit but it really is the easiest way.
