Maybe the 5th time is the charm?

I had this idea to create a nice holiday afghan as a gift for my father for Christmas. Unfortunately, it's clear that I've forgotten some of the basics for how to do machine knitting. The problem has been compounded by the fact that the machine I'm now using is a newer model than the one I've had years of experience on.

First attempt: I didn't get the cast-on right.
