Hey, all!  I am kind of inexperienced with the circulars.  I am having trouble knitting smoothly because the cord is coiled and out of control.  Does anyone know how to get the kinks out of the cord?
Thanks!

I know this one is frustrating 'cause I just started a new sweater on circs... Usually it kinda works itself out -- when the knitting becomes heavier the cable eases out and your knitting hangs as a tube down from your needle. I've also found that after an inch or two of fabric I can see where the cable is twisted and simply untwist it there.  If it's really frustrating, you can take the needles out of your knitting, soak the cable in warm water and gently stretch it to be more flat. If you're already knitting, that may be a last, drastic step...

Thanks so much for the tip.  I am going to try to untangle the cord before the next project!
