Many people (including me, sometimes) get a long
thread when going from a knit to a purl.
What I've found works well is to purl the stitch through the back loop
on the one side. It twists the stitch, and I believe uses less yarn and avoids the stretch.
However, on the next row, you need to knit that stitch through the back loop
to untwist it.
