Knitting action shots

Disclaimer: No actual shot of in process knitting are included in this post.


I took some quick shots of Jack’s completed winter scarf and hat set this morning.  I love the color combo.  He has a silver winter jacket, so these colors look great with it.  As I mentioned yesterday, all I had left to do on the scarf is weave in the yarn tails.  I had put off doing so for at least a month if not more.  So silly really; it was only about 20 minutes of work.  I love that the ends of the scarf are different colors.  Kind of quirky, but cool.  As a reminder, I used this pattern from Liesl’s blog.



I would love some expert advice from the knitters out there to let me know how I can keep the ends of the tails I weave in from poking out.  They just don’t seem to stay put.  I hate it when they poke out.  Please help me!

Here’s a reminder shot of how the hat looks on Jack.  I don’t have a picture of him wearing the scarf, unfortunately.


Tonight I finish up the cashmere curse!  I’m so excited that I am finally going to finish it.  I can’t wait to wear it tomorrow. 

Happy sewing everyone!

    Jack is growing like a weed! The knitting looks great. Sorry I cannot help you with the knitting as I am just a beginner knitter myself.

    Love the color combo – they’ll look fab with the super-duper silver jacket!

    Gotta get knitting again. Soooooo many things to do.

    Great combo and I look forward to seeing the full combo w/ the jacket.

    BTW, I have been known to get out the needle and thread and tack the ends after I wove them in. A drop of fray check (or block) after that, and the tail ends are not going anywhere!

    If you are using old fashioned wool (not superwash), the ends will eventually felt in and not migrate. If you live in LA, as I do, and knit with non-wool yarns that migrate, then the needle, thread and fray block will be a big help.

    When I weave in ends, I do them like doing duplicate stitch. I follow the path of the stitches underneath. This helps, as the yarn is held in frequently. I also go for a good inch or so, then stretch the knitting, then weave in a bit more or cut the yarn. If you cut it first, then the item gets stretched while being worn, you’ll end up with a very short tail.
