How do you knit first row on circular needles?

Cast on one stitch more than your desired number of stitches and arrange your needles in preparation to work in the round. Move the last cast-on stitch (the extra stitch) to the left-hand needle. Knit together the first two stitches on the left-hand needle (the first cast-on stitch and the extra stitch).

How do you join a new ball of wool when knitting in the round?

Thread the yarn tail onto a seaming needle. On the wrong side, weave the needle and tail yarn across a row, under the purl bumps (sometimes called back loops) of the stitches. Do this for at least 4 stitches. Move to the round below and weave back in the opposite direction.
