Oh Nice! Yeah I struggled at first and had to start over a lot but after awhile it's so fun and easy!

I agree, the 'thumb' version of LT cast on (or 2 handed version is what I call it) isn't tight at all. It just depends what you're used to. It's the way I figured out how to LT cast on because I couldn't do it the one handed regular way. It all takes practice - cast ons, knit and purl sts and all the rest.

It's almost always a struggle at first and if not at first, then at second. Remember that there's often more than one way to do whatever you want to so: cast on, knit, purl, etc. Try different ways until you find something you like or that makes sense to you.

I agree, probably the easiest way is to cast all the stitches onto one of the dpn, then distribute the stitches to the correct needles. You'll get the hang of it, it gets easier with practice!
