Hmm, I think you're over-thinking the slipping off. A yo, when you come back to it, is just like any other stitch. Every stitch is made with the same yarn, so they will all be connected, but when you knit, you only slide one "loop" off the left (holding) needle at a time. Try to forget it's a yo at all, because after you've created the stitch, is just like every other stitch on your left needle (really!).
However, my camera is working, and I might see if I can get a swatch together in a bit and take still pics for ya!
