What is the best way to deal with all the little ends after you weave them? No matter how hard I try to hide them they still pop out.UGH!!I am still working on my "doggie" afghan.Not a good time of year to have all this yarn draped over my legs but I am determined.

I knot them. I weave it through a bit and then separate the yarn in two, thread half on a needle and take a stitch then tie in a square knot and clip close to the knot

RE: frayed ends

What a great idea! I'm going to try it.

RE: frayed ends

I crochet over the ends when I change colors then weave them in going one way then the other back and forth a few times and they stay put. I was taught to never use knots so that's how I do it. Mary

RE: frayed ends

I'm glad it works for you craftylady. It never did work for me and the knot in a single strand of wool isn't even noticible in the finished piece
