I’ve already said this, but there is more to ‘just knitting’ a gift; day 14 was blocking; day 9 was gauge swatches; day 4 was ripping back mistakes/wrong needle size/wrong yarn choice. Today is weaving in all the ends to finish the project.
I tend to leave this part last; sometimes I’ll knit up facecloths, put them in a pile to weave in the ends later. So at this point in the knitmas chaos, I ‘should’ be done the knitting and just have a pile of ends to weave in….but as mentioned on day 20, I’m behind – partly due to Day 3 (distractions) and day 4 (mistakes). So to prevent multiple IOUs (day 15) I have to weave in ends to ‘finish’ projects ASAP.
