Sorry if this subject is a dead horse but I'm pretty new to knitting and casting on is such a trouble point for me. I was wondering what is your favorite method of casting on. I have learned the knit cast on (I think that's what it is called), which comes out okay but I don't like the "fat" look of that edge. I like the look of a well executed Continental (I think it's also called "Double"), cast on but I have a sloppiness issue whenever I do it. Either I get a random, sloppy looking edge with stitches of varying tension or I get a beautiful, perfect looking row of cast on stitches that are so ungodly tight they're nearly unworkable. I want to learn the right way right away so I can have neat, professional looking work and not a pile of sloppy looking beginner projects. By the way, I'm new here as well so "Hello everyone", I love this site already.
