I'm always thinking about 5 projects ahead of what I'm actually working on.
For example Right now I am finishing a pair of wool men's socks, working on a black kid mohair scarf which will get tiny shocking pink knit roses sewn on th ends, am waiting for my green variegated mohair Bunny Print blend yarn to arrive for my first sweater. Yet, I am already thinking of starting another pair of socks. Pink ones.
The first socks I made had a regular cast on, and was it ever hard to get my feet in them. I painstakingly loosened the cost-on before I finished the ends. From then on, using a trick a friend told me about , I have been using a needles 2 sizes larger than those for the rest of the project to cast on. Many months ago, Helen form the knitting group told me about the German Twisted Cast On. And I am finally ready to try it.
In preparation I searched the internet for a video tutorial and I found one that clearly explains. Click to watch German twisted Cast On.
