Some completed works
I spent some time on one of my least favorite knitting related tasks:
weaving in - I did it on a crochet baby blanket I made about a year
ago; I decided it looks fine - at first I could only see flaws, now I
see a very pretty blanket. I also wove in/trimmed countless ends on
the Louisa Harding wrap - now just have to crochet hook the fringe...
Now I have another task I've been avoiding - redoing the seams on the
Cardishawl that I made with Debbie Bliss - I just have to adjust the
sleeve position - it will be my 3rd time redoing it! And then crochet
the trim, which I look forward to doing. The weather lately had me
wishing I had completed this already, I would have liked to wear it on
these chilly days.
Does anyone experience end-weaving anxiety like I do? I always wonder
if it's enough, will it unravel, but I hate doing it and want to
finish as quickly as possible. I did learn to wrap/weave the ends in
as I go but still wondered if I had to weave just a little bit more
before trimming; then wonder - should I be gluing in with fabric glue
- but that seems so tedious - I just want to KNIT! Does anyone relate?
I do find I get into the zen of it a bit and often it goes faster than
I expected but still... it's something I don't care for much.
