      Thanks Erica,

      Shortly after I posted this, I heard on the Knit Picks podcast about using 2 circulars, I think in the same way you use the 2 dpns. I will try that when I get home.

What I did was use 2 dpns until I got a few rows established, started adding another dpn or 2, then moved to circulars. I'm not sure how you'd start it on circulars (though I'm sure there are wiser knitters out there who could tell you).
