I just started my first project, a striped baby blanket. All is going well, but I have one burning question.
I finished the first row of colour and successfully wove in the next colour and started knitting it in. It said NOT to cut the yarn of the first colour but just leave the ball attached for the next stripe that will need it. I wove the next colour in WITHOUT binding off (correct term?) the previous colour. The yarn is really loose in the spot where the colours merged. Should I have bound off after the first section and then wove the new colour in? How can I correct it? Also, what happens when I need to use the first colour again and I have to pull this long yarn attached to a ball down to start the next row?
Does this make sense? Any help you can provide would be awesome.
