Knitting ART!

I love it when I find knitting in art. Saturday wasn't any exception. Had lunch with a couple friends at Haiku. Halfway through the meal I noticed this on the wall at our table. Now I want to make something similar because it is way cool.

Sock yarn leftovers

I have accumulated a good deal of left over sock yarn ends. After several attempts at using those ends I believe I have found the winner. Yesterday I stumbled upon Kary's Chevron Scarf pattern and thought hummm that might work.

When I got home last evening I grabbed my sock yarn ends and cast on 36 stitches using the long tail cast-on method. I modified my color changes a little bit. I am knitting the 4 pattern rows with one color and then changing to another color. It is going to leave me with many ends but that is OK because I don't mind sewing in ends. Of course this project may help to change my mind.

I am thinking about sewing them in as I go like I used to do in my early knitting life. I remember stating at knit group early on that I hated having all the ends sticking out so I would sew them as I went. I have since learned this isn't always the best thing to do especially when knitting a garment because sometimes things go wrong and if the ends are already wound in it could cause another round of bad. OK enough rambling.....
