By Jove I Think I Got It

So I tried and tried to figure out the Twisted German Cast-on so I could start the "Dragon Socks" and I just couldn't get it. For some reason the photos weren't helping at all. So of course I went to Amanda at Clothesknit who almost exclusively uses this cast on. She kindly wrote out directions with hints and lo and behold...I tihnk I got it. I tested it out on a bigger target (size 11s)...unfortunately I had to frog my Brioche Bodice and start over...there was a huge hole in the middle...somehow I dropped a stitch and didn't notice. So I just cast on again using the Twisted German. And by jove I think I got it!!!!So the plan is to try it on my size 2s and get my hurricane pal's sock started.

THANKS AMANDA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You are most welcome! Glad it worked it -- you'll develop a rhythm with it and I swear I use it for just about everything now.
