"I hate this part right here..."
To do a rough securing of my ends while working on a project, I fasten off my ends with a slip stitch. I then cut off and leave about 5-6 inches/12-14 cm of yarn. I take my hook under the next stitch and bring the thread through and then I bring the thread back under the loops in the next stitch. Later when I join a new yarn I weave in the end with 2-3 stitches, trebles (UK) in this case as this is a granny square. And then I leave my end until I am ready to secure it for life!!!

|Sew in your ends under the stitches of the back of your work, preferably back and forth a few times.|
|Cut off the yarn close to your work.|
|Massage your cluster a bit to soften it up and - VOILA - you can't see anything at the front of your work.|
Well, that is it. Thought it would be fun to share. You may do it in a different way and I am always interested to here your version as mine is a bit... Time consuming.
Another tips for you if you like me "Hate this part right here!" is to fasten off as I go. Not one square at the time but after lets say 10 or 15 squares I take an hour and fasten off all ends before continuing. It makes a huge difference. Especially on big granny square projects like blankets.
