Here's a hint for Fair Isle to keep it the right tension and not too tight or loose. I hold my yarn in my left hand Continental style. I usually only do two strands at a time but it would work with more. I hold both strands in my left hand. I use the tip of the needle to "pick" the strand in front. I then rotate my hand toward me and "pick" the second strand. I alternate the two hand movements. This twists the two strands around each other anchoring them in place. The back of the work looks nice and neat with nothing to get snagged on.
Welsh corgis are cool.
