I LOVE circular knitting!
I may never go back to regular needles! LOL

I figured it out today, and am SO glad I did. I love it. Seriously.

Circular knitting is great--stockinette is SO much faster when you don't have to purl. I'm glad you're enjoying it!
If at first you don't it and try again!

I felt the same way and haven't used straights since!

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

It took me a while to get it down, but once I figured it out. I love it! I do have one problem I kinda fixed myself. casting on with a fuzzy, or boucle yarn. I have to cast on with a regular yarn, them swich to the fuzzy. You can't tell if it is twisted or not.
keep on knittin

Er, I'm knitting in the round, in stockinette, right now. How is it that you don't have to purl? I'm new to it and can't picture how that would work...

When you knit in the round you don't have to purl to achieve stockinette stitch? I think I am confused. I am fairly new to knitting in the round and am still trying to get everything straight. What happens when you knit in the round and knit one row then purl the next? If someone could explain what is what when knitting in the round, I would be very thankful!

I love circular knitting as well.

For stockinette in circular, you just knit all the rows, that makes it stockinette. Because the wrong side never faces you, only the right side.
The ways of Yarn are inscrutable.
