Dear Problem Ladies,
I feel like a goofball because I can’t get a good cast-on of 30 stitches at the end of a row of knitting—which, after they’re knit, are to be joined. My 67 attempts at backwards loop each resulted in a frail piece of mess. Any obvious, or even goofy, secret ways of success out there? Thanks Ladies!

Dear Problem Ladies,
What do you do when you want to start a project and you can find that little package that the circular needles you need came in, but the actual needles are in another project? And this happens over and over again—no matter how much you try to need the needles you do have, you end up needing the ones you don’t have. Do you buy more needles? Please don’t tell me to finish one project before I start another. I already have a mom.
