It is definitely not my favorite thing to do, but what are ya gonna do? lol If I have a lot of weaving to do I save it for a 'non-thinking' activity when I'm watching tv. lol

I absolutely HATE weaving in ends!!!

I try to work over my ends as I'm going along, but there is always at least one end to weave in....

As for changing colors..... The "Russian Join" is a LIFE SAVER:

i absoultely hate weaving in the ends. i try to do it as i crochet along, but usually i dont. i had to weave ends on the big superman logo blanket for about 150 rows with 4-10 color change on each row. it took 3-4 hours for 3 days to just weave in the ends. on the second one i did, i carried the black and the red when i could. that saved me lots of time and tedious work.

I hate weaving the ends.  I bought a huge granny square afghan at a yard sale for a dollar and quess what.....she didnt weave in the ends either! LOL  I have be meaning to do it but I dont want to!  I have had the afghan for a year now and I just live with the little strands!

As for this post Angelica......that is a neat link!!  I am going to try that it looks like it would be so easy and hold up better and you dont have the ends to weave in.  It looks so smooth too!

I am going to try that Thanks for posting that link!!!

My thing is when I am working on an afghan I  do the weaving in on the boarder, since most of my color changes are on one side of the  afghan it works out well. Otherwise I don't do a good job of w eaving in.
