This is what happens when I sit and knit, and knit, and knit. I end up with a gigantic pile of items to process! So what do I mean by process?
When I get on a roll typically I'll finish knitting a project, place it in a pile and then start knitting some more. As a result I end up with a rather large pile of knitting.
Ive been knitting straight for the past two weeks. 7 infinity scarves during our road trip to Washington state, 3 more infinity scarves when first arrived back home, 2 cowls, and. 2 shawlette.
The next step in this process is to weave in all the ends. It takes a while for 14 items! So I set myself up at the breakfast bar, started The Crown on Netflix, and spent the next few hours weaving in the ends.
My friends and I have had many conversations on the best way to weave in ends. There are so many confusing instructions out there. But the best article I found is from Fiberspace. It's the way I weave in my ends and it produces a strong, almost invisible blending.

After weaving in the ends I spent the next 1 1/2 hours sewing on my tags. That task I need glasses for!
Sometimes they come out perfect.
But most of the time the thread gets so jumbled up! I'm really a knitter, not a seamstress!
"There's gotta be an easier say to do that" my Faithful Sherpa always says. "a way where you can just punch in the needle, pull it out and it's fine!" Wouldn't that be great!
And the last step...a photo shoot. I was planning on doing that today but it's snowing outside, again. I think I'll way for a bit clearer day.
