Weaving in ends from Garnstudio Drops design on Vimeo.
I have been asked what in the world am I going to do with all the ends I have from adding different yarns on my current project. Mostly I weave them in as I go just like the video here. But I am not as consistent as I could be, so later I will use a crochet hook and pull the end through the purl bumps on the back. It never shows and works just great.
In this picture, the orange and yellow sections illustrate the afterthought weaving in. But at the bottom, right above the text, is an example of weaving in as I knit. Keep in mind that I knit Continental, just like the video, and it will be different for you who knit English/American or aka throw your yarn.
The whole time I am making this vest, I am trying to write down what I am doing so I can make a pattern, but I have ripped out and reknit so many times that it is hopeless. So I think I will do this vest again, right away, in a single color, and then make a pattern from that experience, which I am guessing will be WAY more popular than my crazy all color version anyway.
By the way, I am late blogging today because last night some people dropped in on us, unannounced and wanted a tour of the house. This happens more than you'd think. Anyway, I had been rather neglectful of my housekeeping and was mortified at what a mess had built up over several days of focusing on knitting and nothing else. Shame on me. I vowed to attack the house first thing this morning, resulting in a delayed blog entry.
I just washed my floor and was waiting for it to dry and thought I would sneak in a post in a hurry, so here it is late.
