carry the yarn?
thanks for your help!

i guess i don't know what you mean by "carry" the yarn. i'm doing a mitten that changes color every 2 rounds (1st rnd knit, 2nd rnd k1p1). i did the first mitten knowing it wouldn't turn out too great...and i was right. the join where the colors change was really sloppy. i really liked the seamless appearance of the dbl knit-in, but i just about pulled my hair out trying to figure a way to use it in this way. i got it to wor, but it left my yarn a gigantic mess. but i digress...

when you carry the yarn do you literally hang on to it while you continue to use the other colors? i tried just picking up the new color when i needed it but it just didn't look right. any other suggestions?
