Fixing holes in my colorwork sweater
Yeah, one of my yarn ends popped out of my horses (Horses Pullover in the 'Whatcha Knittin'' section). I knew it was too short, but I didn't want to add new yarn for just one or two sts. So now, I have holes - one major, and the 2 or 3 others will probably fix themselves when I weave in the ends. Is just a regular duplicate stitch the way to pull that all together, or is there a specific fix for this kind of knitting?

I don't know if there is a specific fix; I generally pull it all together on the back and tack it down. As long as the front looks ok, then it's perfect, right?

Thanks. Just wanted to make sure there wasn't some fabulous secret that I simply couldn't find. There's just the one bigish hole that I think I'll have to do more with, but the rest pretty much seems to just need tightening on the back.
