Hello! I am a reasonably new knitter with 2 questions really. The pattern that I am working calls for frequent color changes and slipping the first stitch of each row.
Question 1: do i slip the old color as the first stitch and then start the new color or how do I change so that it is the new color that I am slipping?
Question 2: Does anyone have a better technique than tying my two yarns together to join a new color? I tried the whole twisting the yarns together like my grandmother does but it was a nightmare. Now I am just tying a tiny knot close to the last stitch and then tucking both ends in.
