My name is Michelle and I’m a new knitter and a new mom. I use cloth diapers on my 3 month old baby, which has brought me to the world of knitting! I’m trying to make a wool soaker for my baby’s diapers.
I learned the VERY basics of knitting back in collage, but now I’m finding that it’s not enough. I also know the basics of crocheting, a tad more than I know about knitting.
I’m pretty good at teaching myself using instructions, but I’m not finding answers! I’m trying to make [this](http://www.curlypurly.com/soaker.html)
I’ll start by saying I will be so appreciative of anybody that can offer advice. I realize there is only so much that can be done on the Internet.
So, to begin, it says CO 72. I’ve placed 72 slipnots on size one circular needles - 4 sizes smaller than what would be used to make gauge and the yarn said 5. If that’s ok, then my question is about the following step. “Join and mark start of round” I can’t figure out what join means! I’ve figured out that mark is just tying a piece of string - what do I tie it to?
I you take the time to read this, that you are a good person!!!
