Weaving in ends is just part of the process. I actually don’t mind the chore – as long as I know that I did my very best in limiting the number of ends. I think I did a good job with this project. The blocks that are two colors I carried the yarns up the side as the color changes were every two rows. Then, one of those colors went into the solid garter block (I planned that on purpose).
One time I knit a baby sweater using lots of different colors and just randomly changing those colors. It turned out super cute but I had no less than 100 ends to weave. That was just plain stupid. I promised myself to not do that again.
At the time of writing this I am finished knitting the seven required strips. Next up is seam, seam, seam. Wish me luck – I’m going to need it.
