From the book Godless:

Just Al: I know that God is real. I feel his presence in my heart
Me: What does it feel like?
Just Al: It's hard to describe Jason. It feels good.
Me: Oh. I thought maybe it was like heartburn or something.

It doesn't feel like exercise when you're wearing chiffon.

Cut the yarn after your last stitch, leaving a few inches of a tail. Then, with your hook, pull the tail through the loop(s) of your last stitch so it closes the stitch up. Pull it tight! Then, you can use the crochet hook or a yarn needle to weave the yarn tail back into the body of your work to hide it.

Here's a link to more info: http://crochet.about.com/library/bl_weave_ends.htm

... or, if you're making fringe, you don't need to weave in the tail because you can make it the same length as your fringe and it'll disappear anyway!
