A five-minute dress alteration, finishing a multi-year knitting project, and working on endless edits

Each Wednesday, I post a snapshot of the projects I’m working on, and where my brain is at.

How many ends can one sweater have? It turns out this sweater has 4 weeks worth of ends.

But all the ends are woven in! Now this sweater just needs a quick bath and it’ll be finished. Considering I started this sweater at the end of 2014, it’s about time.

I also knocked out a quick alteration from my pile of works-in-progress. And am continuing, what feels like, a never ending editing process.

how many yarn ends can one sweater have?

Each Wednesday, I post a snapshot of the projects I’m working on, and where my brain is at.

I’ve been avoiding weaving in the ends of this sweater for years.

And it turns out I’ve been avoiding it for good reason – it’s the sweater with ends that never end, which is one of the larger downsides to knitting intense colorwork.

I’ve been weaving in a handful of ends here and there, because I think if I tried to weave them all in at once I would hate this sweater halfway through. That seems to be working (slowly) but consistently, and hopefully the ends will end eventually.

weaving in many ends, sewing together many yards, and editing many, many words

Each Wednesday, I post a snapshot of the projects I’m working on, and where my brain is at.

shawl geometry edits

Picking away at projects one end at a time, one stitch at a time, and one word at a time.

I’m continuing to work my way through weaving in the ends of a sweater with a million ends. And I spent most of yesterday sewing 7 yards of a bright red silk for a theater project. While carving out times to edit many words about knitted shawl shaping.
