You're a hooker?

Great photos Ingrid!! Right now I'm working on my son's sweater mainly green with orange stripes.. I've noticed that when I change color I have one orange st where its suppose to be green or a green st where its suppose to be orange.. all I do is wrap both together to change is this why? Will this stop it from happening? TIA

If you're working in the round, you're really working in a spiral, so the stripes don't line up exactly.

If you're working straight, you know how sometimes the first stitch gets pulled around? Maybe the other color from the last row is wrapping around. I'm not really sure.

Ever since I stopped wearing nail polish and started taking a full complement of vitamins, I have to cut my nails when they get in the way of typing or knitting. They are tough!!

They love them best when they helped to "design" them. Maybe for the snake you could take him out shopping again--steer him in the direction of colors you want to look at for four or more feet of scarf!
