Help I've made a mistake...
I don't have my knitting class again until Monday and I had been looking forward to working on this blanket all week but have run into a snag, hoping someone can tell from the photo what I did wrong.

So on the previous row I had ran out of a skein and added a new one, my instructor showed me how to lay the new thread over the needle and work on however I must have made a mistake because there is a large gap/hole. I would appreciate any help. Hopefully you can see from the photo the short yarn hanging on the left is an end I had cut, to weave in later. The short yarn pulled down laying across the project is the other new end I worked in. My skein yarn is off to the right...crossing my fingers hoping for help.

Thanks so much for reading

It looks like the ends aren't really joined. You can tie them loosely together, then after you knit a few more rows, retie them securely and arrange the knot where it won't show. I usually put mine in the purl bump of a knit stitch on the WS. Then weave the ends in later.

Doesn't look like a mistake to me. It just looks like you started knitting with a skein which is what I do. I leave the "hole" till later and then weave the ends in. It's okay to leave it, but if it bothers you knit another row then weave those ends in. I bring them across each other and weave them in on the opposite side to hold the gap together.

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

Thanks ladies, I did eventually figure it out, and I weaved in the end because it had become unwrapped. And yes like magic the next row made that hole disappear. Thank you so much for you advice!
