At knit's end.

Did you read the Purl Bee this week? You must, you must. I have made enough pixie bonnets to be completely confident in the longevity of my finished ends. Sweaters, are far more complicated. I generally end on an edge so I can weave into the finished seam rather than the body of the garment. Its always a good idea to double back on the finishing to prevent the natural stretch of the knit from working a long straight woven in yarn out. Sometimes you have to choice but to end in the middle of a row. This week's Purl Bee very clearly illustrates how to weave in all those loose ends.
