I only use the figure-8 cast-on, and she's right- it does make a pretty big gap. I'd love the chance to win this book and really learn how to do the Magic Cast-On! Thanks for the offer!
Please shoot me an email at carolATblackbunnyfibersDOTCaHm along with your shipping address. I will give your information to Judy Becker and she will sign and send your book!
Thanks to everyone who commented. I have a whole backlog of books to review so look for more book reviews and giveaways in the coming weeks.
And for those of you egging me on with my Sullivan sweater, I've got the 3rd nupp row done. Today I am going to finish the 4th and do the row where I turn up the hem and join it....then things will go faster with nupps only at the beginning and end of the rows.
