That is definitely not the word I would use to describe casting on the cuff on double pointed needles (DPNs). Anxiety is a good word, since I'm always worried about dropped stitches. Frustration was appropriate when I had to rip out my first attempt. Forty rows in, I'm considering ripping out my second attempt because I'm still disappointed with how uneven the stitches are. I've got a way to go before I've made enough increases to switch to nice, dull circulars. And just think, I get to do this all again on the other sleeve.
