Knitting In The Round
I have used circular needles on projects that were too big for straight needles (afghans). However, I have never "knit in the round" before. Could someone tell me how to join the yarn?

Once you have your stitches casted on, hold the two needle tips in each hand so that the one with the stitch that has the working yarn is in your right hand. Now, make the first stitch from the left needle and with the working yarn coming from the right, your work will be joined. Take a look at the first video on this page:

Knitqueen,
Thank you! You explain things very well.
You are in western Canada? I would like to see that part of the country some day. My family is from PEI and my husband is from Montreal.
I am American living on Cape Cod.
