I just posted this explanation in another thread.

Quote:
What I do is kind of hard to explain, but I'll try. A few stitches before the color change, start weaving in the end of the white yarn by inserting your needle to work the red stitch, then put the white yarn over the right needle tip from back to front--counter clockwise--wrap the red, remove the white and finish the red stitch. This should catch the white yarn. It has to come up from under the red to work, though, so you may have to play with it a bit.

Do it for a few stitches before and you won't have to worry about weaving in the end later.

oooooh, you mean like the way you do it when you are wrapping the unusued yarn behind a stitch over long floats?

Yes--exactly, except you're doing it before the color change with the tail pointing to the right.

If you find it difficult to just start knitting with a colour, but don't want to tie a knot either, I often just attach a safety pin to the work and tie the new strand of wool to that, because sometimes I can't spare a thumb to hold it down.
