Sounds like your circs may be too long?  That would make sense with what you are saying.  what size are they?  How long is the cable?

I think I am transferring-challenged, or just not getting it. So instead of using a dpn to transfer one set of stitches to the dpn, I used on side of my circular. Which means now I have 2 dpns in the works and one circular side in the mix. Now what? If I continue to work on the one side of the circular...won't that be just like straight knitting? How do you connect them? I am sorry to be so slow....I really really do appreciate the help though!!!!

I think you're overthinking this. It happens so frequently and so easily in knitting, I've done it a lot and I always get myself way too confused to do something and it takes me days to figure it out. Once you get it, you'll be hitting yourself wondering how you got yourself so confused because it's SO EASY!

Anyway. Just knit the circle around using your circular needle, getting rid of needles as needed. Once you have all the stitches on the circular needle, you start again at the beginning of the round, and knit the circle again. It will only be flat knitting if you knit back and forth rather than in the circle.

I just have a few words: nitwit, blubber, oddment, tweak.

I got it!! Thanks for the help, and yes I WAS overthinking it. Unfortunately my blanket only has 9 sections rather than 10...don't know how I lost one along the way but it still is looking VERY cute! Thanks again!
