5,000 ends = 94

This post about the 5,000 ends may have been a bit of an exaggeration.

It is more accurately 94 ends.


Yes, I like the sweater, yes it is cute and to have that matching ribbon, well, that could not have been planned better. But 94 ends! What was I thinking? The kind ladies at my Tuesday night knitting group asked me if I would ever do that again. My shotgun answer was "NO!" But, truthfully, would you consider having another baby when asked that question immediately following labor? NO! We do it anyway don't we?

Please do not misunderstand me. In now way am I comparing weaving in 94 ends on a baby kimono with labor. It was just an analogy. It only feels like labor in my mind.

My brain hurts at the thought of that much weaving in. Ugh....
