I should have done six pattern repeats (a 24 row pattern) instead of five.
But I’ve bound off and am now weaving in ends. I was using one of those big-box store brands of acrylic yarn, not the ones that come in skeins large enough to yarn bomb the Washington Monument, but large enough that all told, I used only about a skein and a half, but even so I have about 28 ends to weave in. (20. I counted.) This is because I switched colors just a few times.
I hate weaving in ends.
Tomorrow I need to decide if I am going to crochet along the non-cast-on/bind-off edges to clean them up, or if I need to really quick learn how to pick up stitches. The former is quicker, the latter will look nicer.
Have I mentioned how much I hate weaving in ends?
