KNITTING IN THE ENDS
QI’ve been hearing talk in my knit and natter group about weaving in your ends as you go, and I can’t quite work out what they are doing. Can you explain it to me?

People talk most about weaving or knitting in the ends when they are doing colourwork. This is because as you change colour you create another end which needs to be tidied away. By far the best way to deal with this flood of ends is to knit them in as you go. To do this insert your needle in the next stitch, wrap your ends around the needle, wrap your working yarn around the needle and take the ends o your needle before you pull the yarn through the stitch.
