Fair Isle Floats Solved!!! I'm an Idiot
Okay..I figured out my problem and now I understand why no one could really understand my questions..

Since this was my first time EVER using circulars...I should try using them as circulars and not...*sigh*...straight needles with a cable between them

Bear with me, people...I'll get it right someday

Thanks for all the help!!

I use circs to knit flat all the time.

So, what did you discover about the floats?

Hi Knitting_Guy,

What I found myself doing was getting all the stitches knitted onto my right needle and then instead of continuing in the round, I would switch the needles in my hands and knit again, so in essence, using them as straight needles to where I had a flat piece of work instead of a tubular piece of work. It was so basic that I totally overlooked it when I was worried about the floats. Now I understand why all my floats should be and WILL be on one side
