Thanks for the laughs!

I don't think there IS a correct way to hold your yarn. It's whatever works for you.

It took me a long time to master long-tail cast on, but now I love it. I hate having to teach it to anyone, though.

There has been someone coming to my school to teach knitting and lead interested students in making squares for a charity project. I give her all due kudos for doing this, but I have to say when she started with trying to teach LTCO by standing in the front of the room, I cringed. I ended up casting on for most of the kids and once those who wanted to knit learned how, I showed them the knitted cast on. They were grateful. A couple did learn it, though!

On a side note, I wish I could show the picture of the 6'5" Blood sitting next to the self-proclaimed Crip sitting, knitting, and chatting. Now if we could push knitting in the Middle East. . .
