I could not find the video tutorial for the method I use for a long-tail tubular cast-on. All the videos I found start with a slip knot which I don’t do. It’s possible to cast on without any kind of knot (magic, I know) and I prefer not to use them if I can help it (because magic).

Time to Try Something New

Hello! It’s been a little while. To be honest, I’m not sure that anyone still reads this little old blog so it’s difficult to get motivated to keep things up.

In the spirit of trying new things, I decided to try out the Podcasting thing and see how it goes.

Here is episode 1 where my philosophy is everyone has to start somewhere. Maybe it’ll get more polished. Maybe it will continue to be tangent heavy. Only time will tell.

To be able to have some kind of searchable archive of shownotes, I plan to post episodes & notes over here.

Shownotes for Tansy Knits Episode 1: So I guess it’s a Podcast?

I try to keep Ravelry notes with at least the essential details, but if I haven’t put enough detail, feel free to ask!
