Question about Circs
I'm working on this pattern...a few rows in I changed from back and forth to working in the round SOOOO proud of myself that I could connect at all!!! ANYWAY...is it normal to have the st st wrap itself around the circs? I keep having to uncurl the piece from around the needle. It isn't a prob so much but I want to know if I will always have this issue.....I think you can see in this pic what I mean...or if it always does this you already know
Oh the funky looking split in the back is where I hadn't decided to work in the round yet....I'll sew it up later

Stockinette curls and because of the cord being thinner than the needles the sts aren't as stretched out. So that may cause it to curl the way yours has. I haven't had it happen that I noticed, but I don't see that you're doing anything wrong. The weight of the knit piece should prevent that as you go. Could be you're using a smaller needle than the yarn likes, or you knit tight.

Might be the tight thing....I do seem to knit very tightly but i do seem to have loosened up a bit in the last few rows. This poor thing is gonna have such issues
