casting on question
This is a terrific board/website and I'm so glad to find yall. Just joined the other day. I've had some changes lately, all good, that should give me more time to crochet, knit, etc. You all are very inspiring and movitating!
My question is, does the slip stitch count as a cast on? If my pattern says to cast on 39, do I really only do 38 because of the slip stitch? I'm using the "sling-shot" method to cast on but I would guess there's a slip stitch with any method.
