I have pulled it out twice...
 
Help..here are the directions for the two color cable cast on..DOES THIS MAKE SENSE?
WIth both colors held together tie a slip knot and place on LH ndl with MC first and CC closest to the ndle tip. (OK this isn't a problem)Insert RH ndl tip between the two stich colors, and using the MC to wind around LH ndle, pull up a loop. THIS IS A PROBLEm...I KEEP wantint to put it around the right needle and pull a loop up.
IT then says...Working loosely, place that stitch on the LHndle. Insert the RH between the last two sts. on LH ndle and using the CC wind around LH ndle pull up a loop and place that stitch on the LH ndle....

HELP...I am brain dead on this..it just doesn't see to make sense.

Cable cast on

Check out the video first. I assume you have, come to think of it.

What I see is that you're putting your right needle between the two loops on the lh needle, wrapping your yarn around the right needle and pulling it through. Then you're taking that loop and putting it on the left needle.
Then you take the right needle and put it through the last two loops and pull the other color through, between them, with the right needle and putting that loop on the left needle.

Make sense? You were right to want to pull the yarn through with the right needle.

yes...that is the clip I watched...I think it only makes sense using the right needle. I am going to continue as per the video clip until someone else posts!! :)

But you do use the right needle. I think when they say to use the lh needle to pull up the loop they made a mistake.
