like riding a bike

I, on a whim, decided to pick up knitting again today. I kind of want to make myself a nice headband. It’s not hard, but it’s tedious and requires more concentration than crochet. Instead of one hook, I control two needles and I hold my yarn in the opposite hand. It’s a bit odd to do this again

But I don’t mind. For the cast on, so far as I can tell, there’s a couple kinds. I prefer the long tail cast on, since it’s not all slow and  confusing for me. The ‘simple’ cast on starting with a slip knot and requiring maneuvering of the two needles just seems unnecessary to me. I’ll stick to what  I know, at the moment. And what I know is knitting like riding a bike.

One I recalled the cast on, figuring the garter/knit stitch was second nature. It was goofy to just stop knitting….for like 7 months. But, oh well. Just an update on something unrelated. I need a nice toasty headband. :3
