Thought for the Day

It would be so much more useful, when knitting the first row after the cast on, if I would do so with the end of the yarn attached to the skein, rather than the long-tailed cast off end. Twenty-seven years I've been knitting, and I still do this.


  1. Glad to know I'm not the only one...

  2. Yet one more reason not to learn that cast-on! I've been using the cable cast-on for 23 years, in place of long-tail, and have never had any reason to regret my choice.

    Also, for teaching knitting to absolute newbies, cable or knit cast-on is much easier.

    That said, you have my sympathy for your "d'oh!" moment.
