You just change colors where you start a new round, and knit on. Use one of Amy's joins that she demonstrates. It's not hard!

Usually a pattern would tell you to place a stitch marker after casting on and before you start working in the round, and that stitch marker would be the beginning of your round.

And here is something to help you eliminate the 'jog' when you start a new colour, because you can clearly see it and won't be a smooth transition.

Here's (knitty.com's TipToe sock) another discussion on changing colors. Go to about the middle of the page to the section on avoiding the jog.
