In a learning mood.
So tonight I finally decided to sit down and learn how to do the long tail cast on. It confused me for some reason, but I finally got it down tonight. After that I decided I would try magic loop out. Also very simple lol. So, since I'm in a learning mood, I was wondering if anybody could suggest some other methods for me to try out? Doesn't matter what, I'm open to anything. Thanks a bunch!!

You are doing it all! What about I-cord, a stretchy cast on and bind off and grafting (Kitchener stitch)?

You can try entrelac, that's fun. Or lace.

I was thinking about trying i-cord. Looks simple enough, from the video. Could I do that on circulars, just switch the stitches from needle to needle? I've done kitchener stitch before, but only once when I made my one and only sock lol. I've done a little bit of lace, but nothing very complex, so that is definitely something to take into consideration. And I've been meaning to try entrelac for a while, also a good suggestion. Thanks for all of the great suggestions ya'll!!

You can do I cord on circ, they're just a longer dpn with a cord. Just slide the sts back to the other end and start the next row.

I recommend finding a challenging project to do--one that requires you to learn some new skills (or to practice some you just learned).

Have fun!

That's what I was thinking. I might try making a dog sweater with ML.
