help with my stripes, please....
I'm knitting a project in the round and am adding stripes to the pattern. I've noticed however that I have a jog where my rounds begin and end. Is this avoidable and if so how do I avoid it????? TIA!!!

When I knit in the round I always place a marker at the beginning so I know where it starts. If I have forgotten I look at the tail piece of yarn from the cast on and carefully count up and add the stitch marker there. Does this help?
