First time Fair Isle Knitter
I started a Fair Isle project on circular needles that has 4 colors to it. I am finished with color A, what do I do with it? do I tie it off? Any tips tricks and cool ideas would be very helpful.

No, don't tie it off. Fair Isle yarns are carried throughout the project. Here is a video of how you carry the yarns.

Even if you don't knit two handed fair isle (I do) you can still see how to do it.
