Hi all! I need some help with the Knitty "Monica" pattern found here: http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEspring07/PATTmonica.html
This is the second Monica that I'm knitting, the first I did as the pattern says...on straight needles...but this time I did circs. I am now finished with the body portion and need to transfer 53 stitches (of the total 106 on my circs, I'm making the smallest size) to a straight needle, making it able to be joined to the ruffle once that is knitted. My question/problem is this:
1. How do I put the straight needle into the stitches that are on the circs? I am assuming it is the same as I did before...oriented so the tip of the straight needle is facing right. Yes?
2. I can't seem to slip the circ needle out once I place the straight needle into the 53 stitches. HELP!
