OK, I figured out how to deal with knitting random, thin stripes of eyelash yarn in my Boku (worsted weight) garter stitch scarf. Thanks for all the help with that! [I]Counting[/I] makes a big difference!!
Now what I need to know is this: how do I weave in all those ends? The eyelash yarn is so fuzzy, and variegated with very short colorways, that it really shows up when I try to hide the ends. The stripes are too far apart to carry the eyelash yarn along when I’m not using it, so there will be quite a few ends by the time the scarf’s done. I’ve tried weaving it back upon itself and trimming some of the excess fur, but it hasn’t worked out too well. I think I read someone here saying I could simply tie a knot in the eyelash and ‘hide’ it in the knitting. Can that be done? Or, what else could I do to deal with all those threads? I don’t really mind weaving in ends, but with the eyelash it just doesn’t look right.
Thanks for suggestions–I’m willing to try just about anything!
