Completely silly question here.
I am knitting a bag. I'm supposed to knit it in the round on my circulars. Here's the stupid question...Do I have to have circulars that are smaller of equal the circumference of the bag? In other words is it possible to use circulars that are too big?

I'm looking at my bag and wondering how the hec I'm going to join it as the needles are longer than the bag is.

Thanks for any help.

nope...they can be somewhat smaller (you wouldn't want to do 300 stitches of bulky weight yarn on 16 inch needles!) but can't be bigger for the reason you stated...too hard to join. maybe if you have two of the circs in that size needle you could do it on two circs?
