We need more goat udders!

Cat Bordhi seriously cracks me up. How do you watch her youtube knitting videos and NOT laugh your ass off, and oh yeah, learn something? I needed a refresher course on Judy's Magic Cast-On for my super-secret Ravelympic test socks, and immediately thought of Cat. In this video, she also gives a few tips on knitting socks two at a time on two circulars, which I absolutely love. If you're thinking of learning this method, here's an important tip--learn the difference between cow udders and goat udders. I'll say no more. Just watch the video.

I adore Judy's Magic Cast-On. It is fabulous for toe-up socks. See for yourselves:

There's no seam, no bumpy stuff to bother sensitive toes. It really is magic. The legend goes like this: Judy was laid up, sick as a dog (or goat, if you like) and this revolutionary cast-on just came to her, like a vision. The only thing I can see when I'm sick is the television. Judy Becker, I bow to your skills. Thank you.
