This is the Worst Part

Written by Sarah on March 15th, 2013 Posted in faire isle, knits, sweater, technique, WIP

For today’s post. I’d like to take a moment of silence in honor of all of the knitters out there that we’ve lost to our most tragic epidemic in the community: Weaving in ends.


It’s happened to all of us at one point. Sometimes weaving in ends, you feel like you should just throw in the towel, call it quits, give up. If you know a knitter at risk, don’t be afraid to help.

Now I have to get back to weaving.

ps. I’m heading to Chicago next week! Any places I have to visit?

    Ya know that weavers do it, crocheters do it, even embroiderers on the Bay do it, Let’s do it, let’s weave in ends…
    Do ya think I should go home from work now or later?

    Ok fine….so I have multiple sweaters with ends that haven’t been woven in….but it’s totally in the armpit area, so you can’t tell when I wear them…..

    Chicago! Fun! There’s a pizza place called Giardinos that is fantastic. Millennium Park and the Cloud Gate sculpture is wonderful (and free). I also really enjoyed the science museum. And did you know that the building for the Art Institute of Chicago is the last remaining building from the Chicago 1893 world’s fair? Maybe that’s only interesting if you’ve read Devil in the White City – which is excellent, by the way.

    Have fun!

    Hang in there! Although, you’ve probably gotten all of your ends in by now.

    OMG – I thought I was the only one. Just when you think you’re finished and you can’t take anymore, oops! you have to weave in a bajillion ends. Good to hear from an advanced knitter.

    P.S. Is there an easy way to get fair isle down or do you have to bundle up all those little colors into tiny balls?
