Here are those odds and ends I was telling you about:
Seed stitch knitting with contrasting colors in every row gives the woven look, which I love. Knitting in the long direction gives one something to do with all of those ends, namely fringe.
Now I'm not big on fringe in general. I suspected that Kureyon fringe would not wear too well, so after knotting at the base of the fabric, I braided it and knotted it again.
The only thing that had begun to constrain my Kureyon addiction was the partial balls. Now that I have a reasonable solution for the loose ends, I have no mechanism for restraint.
