When I knit with circular needles before, the stockinette stitch was on the inside of the tube and the purl bumbs were on the outside fo the tube. Is this the way that it is supposed to be or did I do something wrong? I want to get this right before I begin the marsupial tote from SNB.

Your tube would be inside out in this case. Depending on what your would be making, it could make a difference with shapping and other stitches.

Ii would seem that you have been purling if the purl bumps are on the outside. If you want your stockinette to be the outside of the tube, knit every row.

Yippee!! I just answered my own question (okay, while I was talking with my sister). Bibe, the way you worded it was the key . . . I actually had the thread coming off the right hand needle instead of the left. Oh well, luckily the purse I made didn't need anything specific with the tube thingy.

Thanks,
Jill

Okay, that's where I get stuck.  Once I have joined my round on the Marsupial Tote, I START with the yarn on my left needle, but after one stitch it somehow ends up on the right!  I just can't figure out how.  I've been struggling with this thing forever, but I don't want to just give it up, 'cause it's too cool for that.  Smiley  Any suggestions?

I forgot I started this topic  Grin! Brae_Day, you will always have the yarn on your right hand needle after you make the initial joining of the round (not sure why, but there you have it) kind of like it is on the right when you knit on straight needles. I guess that is why they tell you to place a marker when you knit in the round. The marsupial tote is the best . . . quick to knit and super easy once you get the right twist.

UUUGHHH Maybe I'm doing things wrong from the very beginning.  Okay, so I have my 44 garter stitches on and ready to go.  Do I pick up all of my stitches with my LEFT hand needle?  'Cause that's what I've been doing... when people say "join the round" I don't exactly know what that means which leads me to believe I'm doing it wrong.  What's to join?   Smiley  Thanks for your help, I was a little afraid nobody would respond 'cause this thread is kinda old and short, hehheee...

Awesome, that was perfect.  I'm a pretty visual person, so sometimes learning out of books is difficult for me. 

As much as I LOVE the Stitch 'N Bitch book, I wish there were more inbetween steps shown on some stuff than there is.  But hey, luck for me I have Crafster!!  Hopefully my nest post reguarding this freakin' think will be under FINISHED projects.   Smiley

Thanks again for your help!

Thank you for posting http://www.littleturtleknits.com/circknitting.htm   I didn't realize that on circulars...you could knit all the way around withought alternating between k1 row p1 row.
