Is there a way to pick up stitches in a different color...
that doesn't make that funky "line" on the backside of the garment where the colors cross over each other?

Nope. That happens when you switch colors in plain knitting too. It only shows on the WS though, so it shouldn't matter.

Thanks. Normally that's what I'd think, too. But it's for a baby blanket,and I was wondering if there's a way to make it more reversible, or at least a little nicer on the other side.

Oh well. We'll just see how it goes.

It probably won't matter a whole lot, you'll just have to try it out and see how it looks.
