Ok, so I did my first scarf with changing colors. It seemed to go smoothly, without a hitch.

Until I weaved the ends in. Then it appears I was so worried the ends would be too loose, that they are too tight, and the scarf goes slightly in at each color change. It looks like little color lumps, heh. I'm trying not to cry (it's a Christmas gift) and was hoping that blocking it afterward would work.

What if the person washes it, though. Will it go back to slightly lumpy??

You could pull a bit where the ends are woven in and see if the edges loosen up a little.

Ack, I tried to reply last night, but my comp was all funky. I tried to pull it out a little, but maybe my fingers are too big, heh. It seemed to make it 'bubble' more...

What kind of yarn is it? If its acrylic, it won't block...

Hope you can find a solution, good luck!
