Casting On

Disclaimer: This posting is likely to bore the non-knitter.


I was excited to be able to cast on a new project the other day. To me casting on is like springtime. There's newness and excitement mixed with a bit of anticipation.

I wondered, "How do other knitters feel when they cast-on?"

So I decided to send out this inquiry in humble hopes of getting a reply. If you are so inclined, please finish the sentence below.


Casting on is like...




Until next time...

Well, I don't think I get so excited casting on. I get more excited when I am casting off♥

Casting on is like setting choreography on passionate dancers eagerly awaiting to express a message through movement. The energy that fills the room is radiating! From a dancer.

I'm LOVING the comments.

Cici you made me laugh.

Dancer I loved your application. Thanks so much for sharing.

Thanks Thella for that perspective. I've never thought of it that way.

BTW - Can you all tell that I've just learned how to respond to my comments? I've been trying all year before someone told me that I had to adjust something in my settings. Now if I could only figure out how to respond to them individually. ;-)

casting on is kinda' like starting a new relationship. you think you know what might happen. but know for sure that you do not know what will happen. either way, it's exciting!

I'm thinking like Christmas or your Birthday! You're so excited to get started(unwrapping)and when your finished, you have a treasure (gift from a friend)! Does that make sense?
And you know, sometimes the package (yarn) is just as fun as the end result... think cashmere :) who cares if you ever bind off?
