Hello andreacs, tribe and elaineofshallot. welcome.
regarding the weaving; as i PATIENTLY wait for my extra yarn to come in the mail, i have little do but weave in the ends... it actually didn't take long, about 1/2 hour, and in the end its pretty tidy. At the outset, Elisha and I were lamenting having to do this and coming up with lots of strategies to avoid it, but it was not a big deal actually. I would think the problem with carrying the yarn down would be that when you get to the eyelet part, there is an eyelet right where the colors change and the vertical strands might show through through, unless you can tack them to the side around that section or something . its pretty open in those areas, and i had to be very careful when weaving to keep the strands hidden.
glad to have a few more knitters along for this!
