Advice for Pooling?

Ok... I've got two toes again. And because nothing is easy, I've also got two of Cara's Shazams! (Also known as two pooling socks):

I think I'm doing a pretty ok job of moving around the pooling when it occurs... but the way I'm taking care of it means I'm going to have a whole bunch of ends to weave in. (Yuck.)

And I'm thinking I'm liking this pattern, which you can't really see yet, as it's a 28-row repeat... so it's still a bit of a surprise. So I'd love to keep it. But really, this pooling is just crazy.

I like the pooling. I say just go with it and call it a design feature. But if you want to continue joining a new end every few rows and want to avoid the weaving in, I suspect your yarn has sufficient wool content that the split splice would work well. There's a quick demo here:

Aha, now that's a good idea!

Another vote to leave the pooling. It looks like a tide pool! :)

Thanks Traci, I think I just need to learn to love it! =)
