Knitty Confessions – #2

Seconds ago, I was making progress on the toe of the sock that I am knitting and then, I got to a part of the yarn that, for lack of a better term, I will call “fragile”. You know what I mean, it’s a little frayed. Even with the best of yarns, if you knit a lot, this happens every now and then.

I usually tink to a side and treat it like a new skein of yarn. I knotted the piece here. Luckily, it’s long enough that I will be able to weave in the ends later.

  1. I just learned about the spit splice technique. I think I’d use that, instead of a knot, in a pair of socks. But then, I haven’t quite completed my first sock just yet, either! πŸ™‚ Pretty colors!

  2. For me it depends on the sort of project. Something that is going to be hard wearing, sock or a jumper, for instance I’ll go around, cut the yarn and rejoin after the weird ply bit. But if it’s a toy, and I usually make these for adults, not children, then it doesn’t bother me so much to knit past it as the adults aren’t going to play with them in the same way a child would πŸ™‚
