I didn't have many ends to weave in..I wove them in as I was knitting. I use the same method you use when doing fair isle and carry the strands across. I can take a picture of the back if you want.

That's sweet! Yes, the techniques is fascinating isn't it? I got a great idea from another book where a designer played around with this idea to make handbags. I made one (I have to sew the strap on) and it just turned out great... you can use all little bits of leftover yarn to make a small/med bag. I'll post a picture when it's sewn up.

That is a great log cabin square - so.........square LOL! My squares (of any kind) tend to not look quite as squarish as I think they should lol. But yours looks prefect!

Jan, yes I would love to see what the back looks like the way you have done it. I didn't feel overwhelmed by the ends when I was finished because as I worked, I wove in the ends, but I did cut the yarn at every colour change.

Well, this is not a fabulous example, but here you go. You can see on the front side that it doesn't show. The light blue in the middle of the medium blue is the woven in end. I washed and dried the squares and the ends all held fine.

This is not where I learned how to do it, but it's the same thing.

Thanks for the pics and the tip, Jan. Do you do this on the row where you are picking up stitches, OR do you do it at the beginning of the next RS row?

I do it on the next right side row. If there are two ends (and there usually are) I do the next one on the next (4th?) RS row. I sometimes have to use a crochet hook to pull it through a few threads so there isn't a long float.

ETA: I forgot to mention..before knitting them in I "tie" them once..as if you were going to tie your shoe, but don't do the bow. It may not be necessary, but made me feel better.
