Do you weave in your ends as you go along or do you wait until the end and then do it?

 

I have usually wait until the end and then dread weaving in all the ends. I really wish that I would just do it as I go along...:blush

Depends on what I'm working on. I've started to try to crochet over the tails as I go so that I only have the very last tail to weave in, but it's a new thing and I forget sometimes! Sure makes it easier when I DO remember!

I usually crochet over half the tail and then go back and weave them in the rest of the way.

This is what i often do...leaving the weaving in until i am SURE i will not have to rip back! It is pretty much impossible to rip out after the ends have been well woven in; i learned that the hard way!

I crochet them in as I go along. I find for myself this works. I hate having to go back and do it later.

I do both but it depends on what I'm working on. If it has a lot of ends I usually do it at the end and I dread it!

I do it both ways. I am the opposite of you Nira. If I have alot of ends, I tend to do them as I go, if just a few I may wait till it is finished. Sometimes it can seem like you spend more time weaving than crocheting.

I don't weave the ends in when I am designing as I may need to rip out and change it. If I have a design all worked out though, such as a motif design, and It's just repetitious than I will work the ends in as I go. I normally wait until I have a half dozen or so to do before stopping and working ends in. Then it's a much smaller job at the end.

But for the most part I end up waiting as I am always designing these days.

I usually wait until the very end to weave everything in.

 

Depending on what I'm making, sometimes I'll stop in the middle and weave in what I can, that way I have less to do at the end, but that's only if I'm sure I won't have to frog anything I've done so far. :P

I try to do it as I go. I dread having to do all of them at the end. But yes it does make it difficult if it has to be redone. No matter what when I'm done I usaully have some I missed so I always have to give it a twice over to be sure :blush

I try to weave every few rows or rounds. Waiting until the end seems so tedious to me.

I always used to wait, but everyone encourages you to weave as you go. So I thought I'd do it once, on a lacey shawl no less. Big BIG mistake. It was two pieces and I put together upside down. Of course I only noticed that AFTER I had joined, weaved and trimmed. It took me hours to get it apart.

 

Then only time I weave as I go is on individual motifs or grannie squares.

I put both, but usually I wait til the end. I tell myself that I will NOT do that "next time" but most of the time I still do. I am making the Mosaic Hexagon Afghan and thankfully, I am weaving ends in as I go on this one. I told myself I cannot let another large project go without doing it as I go again. I spent a week trying to weave in all the ends in one afghan -- it also made me decide no more tiny motif afghans! ;)

I really hate weaving in ends. I do both methods. If possible, I crochet over the tails, but it really depends on what I'm making. Last year I was making a motif ghan and it had a ton of tails. It was the most complicated project I had made to date. I thought I'd make it easy and weave as I went...it didn't really lend itself to crocheting over the tails, I had to weave. I had to frog a lot at first and you know the rest. I said I'd never make that pattern again, but am currently working on another by request!:eek

I try to crochet over my ends when I can. I finished an African Flower afghan for a full size bed in September, and didn't weave in any ends until I was done, so now for something like that, I try to do it as I go along.

Depends on the project. I mostly try to weave in ends as I go but sometimes it depends on if I think I'll have to frog some stitches. And sometimes I just get lazy and will put it off until the end. :P

It depends on the item. I usually make smaller items (a lot of hats with two stripes, plus a SC trim that are a different colour) and I weave them all in at the ends.

I mostly crochet over them and leave a tiny bit to be cut. If I'm making something that would be a bit too much a hassle (maybe something real small), I would try to weave them in afterward.
