Another 'weaving in ends' question...
I have gone through the search sections and couldn't find exactly my question, so here goes...

I just finished my first sock (not socks, sock ) and I now have to do something with the tails. I know I'm supposed to weave them back through, blah, blah, blah. Now I've done this with my 2 scaves I've done, but the problem is that on one of the scarves just by pulling it and whatever, the stupid end is poking out in the middle or wherever I ended the weave.

Does that make any sense?

How do I weave the ends in without them 'popping' out?

What I do is I weave in the yarn tail until I'm sure it's secure, then I pull it a bit to tighten it and leave maybe 1/4" to 1/2" sticking out. Then I pull on the garment to stretch it, which usually results in the end of the yarn being pulled back in and hidden. If it's still sticking out, I'll trim it a bit and repeat the process.

When you weave in the tail, do it one direction for a short bit, then in some other direction for a short bit, another, another.... maybe four or five different directions. Then split the tail into halves (plies) and weave those into a different direction each. Pull on the garment a little bit such that it won't ever poke out any more than it is, and trim them off. Painstaking, but it works really well.
