I am attempting to knit a booga bag--one of my first projects, so I'm a bit confused. I am having trouble picking up the stitches after I knit the bottom rectangle of the bag. I tried watching the KH video, and that helped a bit, but I am still a little lost.
This may be a silly question, but when I'm trying to pick up the stitches, am I correct in leaving it on the circular needles? The point where I'm trying to start picking up is right near the needle where the work is. (Does that make sense?) Should I slide the work down so it is hanging off the center cable?
Any help/advice would be much appreciated!!!
