That's part of the nature of stripes done in garter stitch. Because the purl bumps show on both sides, there's going be the previous row's color show through after you change.
Were you talking about the back side? Below is the back side. What I meant is that once I changed colors the first and last stitches of the previous color sort of clashed into the other color on the FRONT side. I understand that on the back it will show the color change. Anyhow THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!

As far as I know there isn't anything you can do about that. All garter stitch stripes look like that so you're not doing anything wrong.

You could just make it a design feature by doing one row at the color change in k1p1 then continue garter till the next color change, etc. You'll get a dotted look across both sides. Give it a try on your swatch.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

My Solution!!!!
I ended up just changing colors without slipping that first stitch. I slipped the first stitch of the row before the color change, of course. For some reason it didn't do much of a difference to my work and after I completed the row of the new color, I immediately went back to slipping the first stitch.

I'm so glad you found a solution you like. That's one of the great things about knitting, figuring out how to make things come out as we want them to. Makes you feel good, doesn't it?
