a stranded knitting question
How do you "weave" in long yarn floats?

I know how to strand knit, but I have read you can weave in floats longer than 5 stitches.

When ready to work a stitch, lay the secondary color over the top of the yarn in use (just behind the st being worked). When you K the st, the main yarn will become the actual st but the secondary color's strand will get caught at the base of the st at the same time.

ETA: check out the stranding info here. Or Nanette has info on her -blog.

Keeping to the knitting basics
