Ok, I am doing the long-tail cast on, and I have an extra tail that gets in the way when I try and knit and when I cut it too short it unravels my knitting. What am I suppose to do with it?
Try to aim for having only a few inches of tail, but if it doesn't work out that way, you can knit it with the other yarn for a few stitches then cut it. You can cut it to about 3 inches and leave it to weave in later.
Just try to ignore it. Once you've knitted several rows, it won't interfere with your knitting. Later you can weave it in, like Suzeeq said.
I like to knit the tail in on the next row.
I loop it and do a overhand knot to get it out of the way. You'll need it to sew seams in when you start making garments/etc.
Sometimes I hold the tail with the yarn connected to the skein and I just knit it. Then its weaved in already, no going back and weaving it in :):muah:
I leave mine hanging. It helps me to figure out rs/ws and odd/even rows.
