Re: Cast On, Rip Out, Repeat

Jane, one of the things I've learned over my knitting career is that if you add one extra stitch to your cast on stitches, then move this last stitch over to the first needle, then *knit this stitch together with your first stitch*, (you now have the correct number of cast on stitches on your needles), the join will virtually disappear. This works for socks or anything else you are doing in the round. Just be sure to knit the two stitches together in pattern, whether that be knit or purl.
