Casting on from a knitted row
I have always used just a simple thumb cast on when needing to cast on at the beginning or end of a knitted row, etc. I find it leaves a small hole. Any better suggestions regarding the cast on so it doesn't happen? I checked Amy's videos, but I can't find it covers this ???

Thanks!

I like the knitted cast on too; I find the thumb loop isn't very good for more than a coupla sts because it's so loose.

The cable cast-on is good too, though I find it easier to do it with a crochet hook and then transfer the stitches to the needle. There's a video for it on the cast-on page.
