Did you manage to cast on?

Lots of people find casting on a bit tricky to start with.  The people who used this beautiful pattern must have started by learning that.

I love sharing knitting with others and if  you need help, do ask around.  You will be amazed how people leap at the chance to share their love of knitting. 

You can find lists of knitting groups in many knitting magazines and on the Web.  They usually welcome new members and will be happy to help you out.

As for the video in the beginner cast-on post.  After looking at it I realised I had been doing it slightly wrong for 40 years.  I wasn't doing that final little twist.  Who knew?
