Hmm, I think you're over-thinking the slipping off. A yo, when you come back to it, is just like any other stitch. Every stitch is made with the same yarn, so they will all be connected, but when you knit, you only slide one "loop" off the left (holding) needle at a time. Try to forget it's a yo at all, because after you've created the stitch, is just like every other stitch on your left needle (really!).
However, my camera is working, and I might see if I can get a swatch together in a bit and take still pics for ya!

AHAHA!!!! You're the greatest! Has anyone ever told you that? Well, all of you helpful foks are the greatest, but those pics were excellent, WMH. Thank you. I think I see how that goes. I guess I should start my practice swatch again.

You do understand that it purposely leaves a hole in your knitting, right? I figured that out by doing it accidentally a few times (okay a LOT of times) when I first started knitting! It's an increase that leaves a "lacy" or "open" look, and the hole may be what you're thinking is "messy." It's supposed to be that way.
No, I know it leaves a hole. I have a great pattern for an openwork bathing suit coverup which is real funky and I want to make it. It's just so "openworked" that it's difficult to keep track of. stitch, yo, stitch, yo, etc. I'm good at being patient and letting the pattern develop, but I don't have any real experience at seeing someone knit a second row and show how, exactly, to knit the YOd stitch. Know what I mean? It would be helpful to see. But, WildMountainHoney really helped out with the pics.
