weaving in ends

I read somewhere awhile back that someone else using Debbie Bliss baby cashmerino was having a bear of a time weaving in the ends without them showing in this circular knitting.
Well, I'm using the baby cash also, in rose-pink, and have stranded the ends in as if I were knitting fair isle, catching one yarn along the back of each stitch for about 10 stitches, then cutting off any remaining, then on the next row picking up the other end and stranding it along. It is not detectable at all from the right side. And the best thing is, there won't be any ends to weave in at the end.

  • I'm glad somebody brought this up...I've been doing the weave-as-you-go thing, too, but my fabric is a very teeny bit sheer, and the carried ends show as dark lines when held to the light. My solution so far has been to change strands only where a seam *would* be, and weaving in vertically. Once I got to the top front, I started cheating and weaving in on the wrong, hidden side of the flap, too.
