Knit One Pearl Two, Part Deux

OK, so I took all the rows out to start over. The casting on, of course, was a piece of cake! However!!!!!! the needles are so large that if I bring the yarn to the end of the needle to pearl then I can't get the yarn onto the other needle because the loop is too small to get back over the large needle. If I keep the yarn down the fat part of the needle then it slips off the other side. I have started and restarted and now I am back to "casting on only". But I'm not giving up. It's too bad I don't own a cat!!!! Then I would have an excuse that the cat got the yarn and destroyed it.

Here's knitting to you!!!
