oh help.

So I want to be knitting this.

I am brand new to DPNs. This is the problem I’m having: I cast on per instructions, move stitches to the other DPNs per instructions - but I can’t move more than 5 stitches before it gets too tight for me to wedge my DPN into the next stitch to be moved. I figure I must be doing something terribly wrong, because there’s no way everyone’s turning out puffs like they are on the KAL if they have to fight for every stitch on the cast-on!

Anyone have any tips or ideas? I can do Magic Loop, but don't know how to do that sort of toe-up start, and don't want to have to sew the bottoms of hundreds of puffs.

Also yesterday I seem to have forgotten how to join in the round doing Magic Loop. >.< Yesterday - I just want a do-over on yesterday, everything after like 10am. There's *way* more on my List besides the time issues I ranted about.

For now: shower, house stuff, dragging Elayna off her computer and putting her to work Doing Something so I can actually maybe get some writing done for the first time this week, and then after writing I can try tackling the knitting.
