a concept

which you become aware in machine knitting. that of waste yarn. you cast on on waste yarn, cast off on waste yarn and you also waste a lot of yarn sampling, undoing and all the ends on the floor because most likely it's not reusable for other casts. sounds like a bad broadway play.

casting off on waste yarn. learning the hard way that the yarn has to be as similar in grist as the main yarn.
if not it becomes hellish when you fold it to pick up the stitches and join pieces on the machine.

the frugal weaver saves thrums to be used as markers so she atones for all the waste yarn,
m(_ _)m
as a carryover from weaving i am obsessed with good edges.even though they will be sewn together and not seen.
