______________main color
______________contrasting color

What I do is wrap the main color by pinching and wrapping, and knit the contrasting color with it over my pointer, if that makes any sense. If you keep the strands lined up, they'll look better on the back, too.
Wow!!! That (somehow) makes sense!! Thank you,Ingrid...one other question...Can I consider myself no longer a newbie??????
