Slipping Stitches Help, Please...

Weaving In?

Hi all,

I am now (and always have) trouble weaving in ends convincingly. Is there a specific, correct way to do this? Everywhere I look it just says "weave in ends!"

Thanks for any help,

Ending Mattress & Kitchener

I know how to begin mattress stitch and kitchener stitch, but I'm afraid I don't know how to end them. How do you make sure it's all secure? I'm paranoid about it all coming undone.

Hi there,

This site is a life-saver! I am new to knitting and have come to my first impasse--the "wrap & turn" at the end of a row. Nowhere can I find an explanation for this that makes sense. ...
