It's ok... You just take your skein of yarn that you were working with or a new skein and start knitting like you would if you ran out of yarn in a middle of a project... I always just start knitting with the first st on the first needle.. you will have a small hole but can just use the end where you joined the new skein to seam the hole shut...

I'm not sure how you have no working yarn. : When you pick up stitches for the sleeve you use your working yarn pick them up as you go so you have it to work with after you're done. How exactly did you pick up the stitches?

The pattern is a top down raglan so she didn't actually pick up the stitches, just put them on holders and now she's ready to do them.

Start with the underarm toward you, take an end of yarn and begin knitting the stitches on the left needle. Then knit the stitches on the next needle and at the end of that one, you'll be back where you started. Place a marker on the needle for the beginning of the round and keep going; knit the next round, and the next one and the next one. To `join' for working in the round you just keep knitting around and around, no turning like you're working rows flat.

Jan, I think she had them on waste yarn, so there would be no ball of yarn there when she wanted to knit them.

It's Ok, as Dustinac said, you just start knitting will your yarn as if you had run out of it in the middle of your project. As you are knitting the first round before you join, you will have a little hole once you have joined that you just use the tail end of the yarn to darn it up once you have finished the sleeve. To join, once you have knitted along the stitches, you should have half on one needle, and half on the other, and instead of turning and knitting back like you would on straights, you just keep knitting back along the first stitch you did, and this will join your stitches so you'll be knitting in the round then.

Hopes this helps.

so i just knit FIRST then when I get back to my starting point, THEN JOIN and continue? INSTEAD of joining first and working in the round? Does that make sense? lol

Yeah, that's right, knit the first round, then start knitting the second round.
