They are the lovey or blankie that a child often drags around with them. You can buy them in stores now (I've seen them at Target), but these are cuter.

Adorable.! I need to learn how to do a provisionaL cast on.; but, I haven't found a video or instructions that make sense to me. Do you know of one? I've actually not started a project or 10 because I haven't been able to figure it out :(

I like the crochet cast on. There's a video here in the cast on section. Here's another one with photos if that helps.

I've started using Judy's Magic Cast On for provisional cast ons. I just move the unused stitches to a holder (extra cable or waste yarn) and they're ready and waiting for me. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1pmxRDZ-cwo I learned to do it for toe up socks, then discovered it's great for any provisional cast on.

You're right. I forgot about that. I prefer the turkish cast on and I used it for a project recently instead of crochet cast on.

I haven't been able to get the hang of using the Turkish cast on. I guess once we find something that works for us, the motivation to learn something new goes down. Maybe that's why I haven't kept trying. With either cast on, there are no crochet stitches to mess around with and then pick out. Great minds.

I think TECHknitter said she just knits some extra rows at the start then cuts the yarn and ravels it out to leave live stitches she can put on a needle. I'm not certain it was TECHknitter, but I did read about it.
