When I taught myself to knit, the little book I was using taught the knitted on cast-on and that is what I’ve been using these past months. Well, I decided to try the Long-tail cast-on (using Amy’s video, of course) and HOLY COW!!! :woot: I LOVE IT! It was SOOOOO much quicker, and easier, than what I’ve been doing. I’m hooked.
I just wanted to thank knitting help for providing the video for that. I’ve tried a couple other times, following books, to attempt this cast-on method I’ve often read about on here but to no avail… I’d go back to what I knew. Not any more! I’m a Long-Tail Cast-On fan now!..
JUST what I needed… MORE excuses to cast on new projects (I’ve got 5 going right now… my DH keeps threatening to take away the needles unless I actually finish something… I’m working on finishing a couple items so I can cast on MORE!! ).
