How do you Cast On?

I started with the thumb method, which I found gave an untidy erratic edge.

35 ways to cast on??  Here's the others I know:

I progressed to the 2 needle method, which is a neater, but tighter edge:

Then I learned the long tail method

Then I learned the cast on between the stitches called Cable Cast On method

This one is by far the neatest.

How do you cast on?

I usually use the long tail cast-on. But I know a few others that come in handy from time to time. I absolutely hate the usual two-strand provisional cast-on, though. I avoid it whenever I can...there are others to use.

Now that's intersting I'd love to know more. I tend to use the cast on or ordinary 2 needle cast on myself.
