I usually upcycle mine and DH's old clothes into new clothes for the kids.
When you Cast on, one needle size up, just use the correct sized needle in your right hand and start knitting. No need to transfer them over really.

Funny: I am in the process of becoming a Certified Knitting Instructor and must donate 15 hours of instruction time in the process (for which I am paying $120). I am having a a hard time finding people with enough time on their hands for me to teach, even though tons of people have asked me to teach them! Sure would love to help you guys out!

Could you build a web tutorial to count as your 15 hours?
