Kia ora friends, welcome back to Never Been Knit - your newbie knitting space at Outlaw Yarn HQ!
Today we reach the milestone of learning the long-tail cast on.
It's an important step because one cannot knit without first casting on - so I was very excited and rearing to go...
...but be honest, at first, my attempts were less Casting On and more Cast Away.
Allow me to hand you over to the power of video where I will share with you my casting on adventures.
In summary, my tips to beginner knitters taking those first daunting steps, learning to cast on are:

Happy casting on!
