    Thanks for the tip. I am new to knitting so I am wanting to know if the cast on edge will look like the cast off edge?

    That was so cool!!! Casting on while knitting is probably one of the hardest thing for beginners … I have also taught my students at school (2nd to 8th grade) and many drop out because they just can’t get the cast on to work!!

    Something I have learned ~ though you probably have figured this out … I have a bunch of friends who are crocheters who claim they can’t knit because of holding the yarn in their other hand. Well, if you teach them the continental method of knitting … they will pick it up quickly!!!

    love you Chandi!
