That is so getting duplicate stitched later.
You know what I'd try? If the stitch on the previous row is CC, then slip it. If that doesn't work, then the dupe is a good idea.

My order has been shipped!!

There's no law about no floats longer than 5 stitches. You can catch the yarn in the back to prevent the floats from being too long. The Philosopher's Wool site has a video, but if it's no longer there, I'll try to explain it.

Sknitter 56---I think the Fates want you to buy the wool! This particular KAL is anything Fair Isle/stranded. There are just too many options out there to decide on one.
