I've been knitting for about two years but up until yesterday, the only thing I've attempted is hats, scarves and an i-chord here and there. I do know the basics of knitting on DP needles as well as circular, but only in the hat context.
I'm bored with hats and wanted to branch out, so I started this Debbie Bliss baby sweater pattern (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/ribbed-baby-jacket). I'm only on the first section (the st st 32 rows), but my brain is having trouble with processing the idea of transferring this work to circular needles...How does that work? I get the initial part of just knitting the work from the straight needles onto the circular, but after that...won't the circular needles turn this into a giant tube? and it looks like this is supposed to be knit flat and joined together at the end.
Does anyone have any tips, tricks, explanations, videos (videos please!!! All I know about knitting I learned from KH and Youtube - mostly KH - and I'm having trouble finding videos that answer this particular question).
