A useful tip

And so…. work on the rainbow blanket begins. This time I’m weaving in the ends as I go. That, however, isn’t my useful tip!

Weaving requires a blunt needle. I was too lazy to go and find one in my workbox, but I did have this one nearby from a recent spell of stitching. Although it has a lovely large and accommodating eye you can see that it has a nasty sharp point which would split the yarn. The ‘eye’ end, however, works well if used as the leading point. No split yarn and the first end almost dealt with.
