Loop cast-on improvement
I'm a big fan of the TECHknitting blog already, and this latest tip (Casting on additional stitches at the end of a row by the loop cast-on method: a trick for beautiful edges) is especially timely as I recently used a loop cast-on for the underarms of Liesl, and was complaining about the loop cast-on while I was doing it at an Aloha Knitters meeting. The general agreement there was that the loop cast-on can be quite unpleasant but there are circumstances where it seems like the best option. If you've had the same complaints, do take a look at the TECHknitting blog post, and if you're new to the TECHknitting blog, do take a few minutes to check out additional posts. The tips are excellent and very nicely illustrated.
