No One Really Shows You?

Do you ever wonder why finishing projects always seems so awful? For every project, it seems like an afterthought. No matter the project though, this chore must be completed.

Perhaps, much like in our projects themselves, we are taught weaving in ends as an afterthought.

Sometimes at knitting classes, especially with time constraints, the whole topic is glossed over.

Even in the best technical books and patterns, it often simply says: “Weave ends away” without ever describing how to execute that procedure.

Or even worse, the crafter wandering about with tails dangling off their newly finished scarf or tails simply cut to the end, a little bump sticking out; just waiting for that loose end to work itself free and unravel the whole thing.

Surely, weaving in ends wouldn’t seem like an ordeal, if we all knew how to do it a bit better. If we were able to execute it easily and simply. The best teachers don’t gloss over this critical element of success.

I’ve been knitting for a very long time and I found this video extremely useful. I hope that you do too! Be sure to share it with your knitting friends, we would like for all of Blue Sky’s Friends to be pros at weaving in ends.

Just keep knitting, knitting, knitting…

Katie
