What is it about casting on a new project? There’s something extra satisfying about casting on something new. It’s right up there with finishing a project and wearing it for the first time.
I recently cast on a new sweater project, and I’m kind of in love with it even though I had a bit of a rough start. After playing with a bunch of variations on the same stitch pattern, I settled on one and then I copied over the directions for the wrong variation! It only took me two vertical repeats to see something was wrong, and I was able to rip back and start over without wasting too much time.
