2x2 Tubular Cast-On Baby!

I have discovered the ultimate 2x2 tubular cast on! All instructions talk about the 1x1, but hey, where's the love on the 2x2's? And you know there's alot of sweaters done in 2x2's too. bwa ha ha.. My bella paquita sleeves are going to be so so awesome. I was trying my darndest to post a step by step tutorial as I was knitting this, but unfortunately my camera (well it's not technically mine) isn't good enough. Whaddaya know? Came to lab today and all this time there was this awesome Nikon camera that is able to capture and focus images up close. Here are my fabulous sleeves. (Maybe I'll post a 2x2 cast-on tutorial if anyone's interested, or I might be the last person on the planet to discover this..)
Check out the neat-o cast-on baby

Winnie, thanks for the link! I was looking for a 2x2 tubular cast on for the vintage cardi, but I didn't like the ones I found online. The one from Craftster looks great though, so I may need to try it out!
