CATASTROPHEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Okay, not really. But close.

*sigh*
So I'm making the Fiber Trends clogs. Let me tell you, row 2 was a real counting nightmare. ANWAY, so row 3, fine, row 4... When I started row 4, I accidently forgot to turn the work, and was, in effect, knitting "backwards." It didn't mess up the pattern because the rows up to this point and through row 7 are symmetrical. BUT, since I'm knitting flat on circular needles, I carried my working yarn around, so it looks like I sort of joined the round, but of course didn't (since it was a mistake). See picture, below.

My question is, what do I do with that yarn inbetween the two ends? I'm afraid to cut it, because it's not very long, and I'm worried that I won't have enough to make a sturdy "weave in". The stitches *almost* fit around the needle, but it's kind of snug. And even though I'm afraid to cut it, eventually I'll have to do SOMETHING with it. I really don't want to rip it out, because there's not technically a mistake in the row.

I just now finished my second outer sole. I didn't say that to make you feel bad, just so you know its fresh in my mind. You know what I would do, being the non-perfectionist that I am? I would cut, then I would tie the two strands on each side in a knot and weave the ends in. Its on the bottom and it's going to be covered and it's going to be felted. Tie it and move on!

I agree with Ingrid. If you have enough yarn to get it weaved in even loosely just to hold it there for now, do it. When it's felted, it'll be in there permenantly. No worries!!

People will, of course, develop callouses and bunions from the huge lumps in their clogs, but what the heck!

You do know I was joking! If tying knots is a crime, then by golly take away my golden needles and lock me up. I knot with impunity as long as it doesn't interfere with the garment. So there!

LOL!! OK, let's get the record straight right now. I *did not* say tie a knot. I did say that once it's felted, even a loose weave will be secure. Heck, even when I do have enough yarn to weave in, when I'm felting, I only weave in like 3 or 4 stitches.
