Gotcha! The 'tensioning' for the Jeny cast on was a hot mess. If you cast on too far away from the previous worked cast on stitch, you are TOAST. Trying to cast on 126 Jeny stitches.you'd have 1,260 failed cast on stitches. 1 good one out of 11 tries. Aaaargh.

The only thing that would motivate me to try the Jeny again would be as a requirement for the Master Knitter's Certificate. Period.
