I don't think I was very clear. It is a toe-up sock with a Turkish cast on. That doesn't really require a join like most cast ons do for knitting in the round. It is almost alredy joined.
I went back and frogged the toe and cast on again. At the beginning of a round with this cast on, the tail is on the LEFT, the working yarn is, of course, on the right. Go figure! anywhoo, I figured it out. thanks for the help.
