there ought to be more horror inspired crafts.

I'm inclined to agree!
Love the scarf and your model Chelsea Grin

To keep from having to weave in ends when changing colors or carrying colors, you can use wool.

Wool can "felt" the ends together.

I learned this from http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/basic_techniques/misc.php
under joining techniques (the felting choice).

Basically, fray the ends, wet both ends (not too wet though!), overlap yarn about 1/2-1", and vigorously roll between hands.

I tested this method and WOW!!! It makes me want to knit with wool for EVERYTHING because of how easy and STRONG this join is! (no knots, ends to weave in, or pieces to carry!

That is cool! Incidentally from the IMDB website, a bit of trivia:

"Wes Craven choose the colors red and green for Freddy's sweater because he read that those two colors are the hardest for the eye to process together."
