For turkish cast on I was taught with these last socks (I have 6 cast on in various stages) we wrap 8, knit across the first needle, then use the tail and knit around both needles. Then start your increases knitting the double stitches as one each time. Easy once you get the hang of it.
Is it OK if I copy this to my Gramma's Useful Stuff blog? I want to try it but I'm afraid that when I get around to it, I won't find it again. Another reason I do 2 @ a time socks and also why I really prefer circular needles, I can find both of them at the same time. My secret fantasy is that one day I will acquire organizational skills I can really use.
