Oh hey, remember when I felt like using up some scrap yarn on a garter stitch dishcloth?
Well, it was a great way to use up scraps and I now have a mostly finished project. What's left?
And some more of these.
Ends. I can procrastinate that very last step of a project like nobody's business because if I wanted to sew in a billion strings everywhere, well, I'd be working on a sewing project. If I'm yarncrafting, chances are I'm just not in the mood for sewing. Which is my tough luck since seaming is an integral part of some projects--especially some I'm working on right now--and because you have to weave in all the ends on your project. You just have to! You'd never dream of using something that looked like this, much less giving it to someone as a gift.
At least, not anyone you even remotely like or respect.
So that's why I'm talking to you today about weaving in your ends, which means I'm just going to recommend that you watch this helpful video on weaving in your yarn ends.
What did you think? Sometimes (most of the time) I find that tutorials on incredibly basic techniques are the ones I need the most because I can always get better at casting on, weaving in ends, or trying out a new increase method. Goodness only knows what I would have learned if this video had started with how to thread the needle!
I'm only joking a little. It never hurts to learn something new. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to some work waiting on me!
