Just watched this episode, and would like to have found a text/written description of the various cast ons used.  They looked so helpful, but you can't really make enough notes during the time they're on.  Really don't want, and can't afford to spend money on, the DVDs right now.

I, too, would like to see Eunny's cast-ons and bind-offs in detail. Does she not have a book? Is there no reference to other resources for those cast-ons and bind-offs?
