learning something new

Look! The first of Daniel's socks is done! He only let me try it on about halfway, but I am confident that it will fit, confident enough to start another.

Since these are plain-Jane vanilla socks that are straightforward in every other way, I'm going to challenge myself to learn a new cast-on technique with each subsequent sock I make out of this ball of yarn. It may change the look of each cast-on edge slightly, but I can't think of anyone who would care less about that than the intended recipient, can you?

And now, since he's napping (finally...bless him) I'm going to settle down with this tutorial on the tubular cast on (it's supposed to be stretchy, so I thought it a good one to start with) and see how it works.
