To avoid as much of a jog as possible I use a diagonal slant when weaving in my ends. I took some photos to try to capture this as best as I could. Hope the photos make sense. So here’s my tut!
To do this I take the darning needle and sew along the path of the top green row to the right. It makes a slight downward diagonal motion to get to that tier.
If you look, you will see that the bottom most light green row to the left is higher than it is to the right. So I make a slight upwards diagonal move to weave in the strand to the left.
In this last photo you can see how the dark green right below the light green area is wonky and the bottom light green rows are not very level. Once you weave in the next color’s strands it helps to bring that row into better alignment.
I never weave in my ends as I go. I always wait until the end to weave in ends. It makes a more seamless beginning of round in my book. YMMV.
I used 234 yards of 6 colors of Valley Yarns Northampton Sport for this piece. I believe I got the yarn on sale, so it was only $3.20 a skein. Yeah me! I have over 75% of most of the skeins left, so lots of stuff to use it on in the future. But alas, it is not superwash, so no baby knitting with it.
Spring has bypassed us this year, just like we never have Fall anymore, just Summer, late Summer, more Summer, and then Winter. We went from 40’s-50’s to 70’s and 80’s. Then we will be back down to the 50’s. I long for 60’s to low 70’s for a long stretch of time. But I never get it. It is currently 9:00 pm and it’s still 80 degrees out there! I am almost ready to sink into a tub full of cold water! Only, it would disturb Hubster, who has an “unknown virus”. What? Yep, an UV. So, rest, let it take its course and if you’re not better by the weekend, come back next week. Oy. Poor thing, he has been miserable. I just know, I don’t want it, known or unknown!
Now, head over to Tami’s for the FO parade. Hopefully I won’t be super late to that party like I was on Wednesday. But let’s not discuss my Wednesday!
