Issue Solved...tearing out too short Cast-On

As soon as I read today's About.com/Knitting article, I exclaimed "BRILLIANT"!


My favourite cast-on technique is the long-tail cast-on, but, as any knitter can attest, if you don't estimate your yardage correctly, you inevitably end up miscalculating and every so often have a too short tail and have to rip back and redo the caston to get the number of stitches you need...casting on 80 stitches on teeny tiny double point needles for socks, this can be rather frustrating.

So later today, I'm trying the long-tail with 2 strands (guess that means I need to cast on a pair of socks) :)
