Beginner Needs Dishcloth Help
You don't need to cut yarn when you change colors. When you start color B, simply carry color A up the side of your work as you knit. When it's time to return to color A, just pick up color A and start knitting with it. The color changes often enough that you won't have a big loop at the edge of your work.
Good luck--and keep us posted!
dont forget to post your FO:)
Thank goodness for groups like these. I'll start over tonight too. And, Katy, I'm using the same variegated, but the lime as the second color instead of the blue. I'll post a pic when I start over!
I self taught myself from a book as well, and like you the nearest LYS is about 90 miles or so away. I also know absolutely NO ONE else who knits, except for my converts, so I sometimes use knittinghelp.com and a book I bought called Teaching yourself to Knit Visually. The book is kinda crappy, but usually explains all the terms that I don't understand.
