Fair Isle Knitting: How to weave in loose yarn?
Hello! I'm working on my first fair isle project. I saw in a book that says that when one colour is used over, say, seven stitches, the unused yarn, when put into use again, would leave a loose strand on the wrong side. A solution to this is to "weave in" the unused yarn along the way so it doesn't hang loosely.

I have trouble understanding how I could weave the yarn through? My yarn is still attached to the balls it comes in and can't be woven as I would normally do when I weave in loose ends of yarn that is cut from a ball. Any suggestions?
