My knitting project: Cast on (Part 3)

After reading the responses on my last post, and seeing that I was not the only one in the class having trouble displaying something that was not perfect; I was inspired to overcome this feeling and post whether my knitting is perfect or not.

Cast on

Casting on is the first step in knitting my scarf and is defined in Merriam-webster as “to place (stitches) on a knitting needle for beginning…[a] knitted work” .  Having found many techniques for casting on around the web I chose the one displayed in the video below because the method seemed straightforward and she displayed it well.

The only problem I faced while doing this was the fact that I had not considered that my cats and yarn do not mix, and they kept trying to steal the ball of yarn.  Once the cats were put into another room the process went smoothly, and I am very happy with the final product.



Stop by next week to see my experience with learning the main stitch of the scarf.

  1. The part about your cats made me smile, Lexi! While painting for my learning project, I had an incident where two cats in a row jumped up and stepped in my paint palette! Haha…they keep life interesting, that’s for sure 🙂 Way to go with the knitting, and for being willing to post the ‘incomplete’ / ‘in between’ stuff. That’s what I’ve been learning to do too, over the past little bit.
