That depends on how you are joining when you run out. There are also great videos on this website http://www.knittinghelp.com/videos/knitting-tips
about half way down, under Joining Yarn (Joining a New Color Yarn).
I'm just learning duplicate stitch join in now. You probably don't need to tie them together, it just keeps it snug until you are ready to weave in the ends, which you can do after you have done a few rows.
