Help please! Cast On Question...
Ok... Cast On Tightness question...

I went back and relooked at the double-cast-on video, because I've been having tension problems, both with the cast on and of course the knitting. When I watched it this time, I noticed that it seems like she is really cranking down on the yarn. Am I right about this? Is it better to have a slightly tighter cast-on and looser knits? (I'm trying to learn this continental knitting. I figure it's easier to learn when I have no preconceived notions about how to knit.) And based on what I can tell and what I'm reading its a faster way to knit.

Any help would be appreciated. :thinking:
