Try out this article. It has good pictures for doing a duplicate stitch, where you weave in your ends by following the yarn through previously-made stitches. (She explains it better. :) ) If you...

Huh. I'm not sure how I missed that they're in DK. Haven't got any in my stash (as I have no stash to speak of) so I'll try it in the worsted as written, but on smaller needles, and see what happens....

Neat!

I'm so inspired by your fair isle... I haven't tried it yet. Your hat's inside looks so nice and tidy! I love the pattern and I totally agree that the brown looks great on top.
