I'm nearing the end of my first kitting project that involves an "airy stitch" (knitting with needles that are bigger than what the yarn calls for), sorry for the absence of proper terminology!!

I'd be grateful if you could offer advice on how to hide and secure the threads that result from changing from one ball of yarn to the next. I usually sew them into the edge so they end up hidden but the stitches aren't tight enough here and I don't think they'd stay put...

Here are some pictures to help you understand what I'm *trying* to say.

Thank you!!!!

Thread those loose ends into a blunt needle, then weave them through the section that is more solid and if you split the threads you're weaving it into, then it will stay more firmly.

Hope this helps!
