Need help aligning stripes
I have started my second felted bag and everything is going just great....Except, I can't seem to get the stripes to line up perfectly. My first bag was all one yarn color. I want to use three colors in a striped pattern for this new one. THe stripes keep making this little jig.

I can see that when I'm knitting in the round that the "round" is really a spiral and each stripe is shifted up one level. Is there any way to avoid this? In the pictures people post of their bags, this doesn't seem to be a problem...What am I missing?

Thanks for any suggestions.
