What do i do after grafting?!

I'm stuck! I graft the gusset together, and now I have no yarn to start on the legs with? How do I get my yarn going again, and work the legs down? I saw
To pick up stitches, i just don't see
How if I have nothing to work with. Do I just tie one end on somewhere or what? I'm doing the eviepants pattern, and it doesn't explain anything at this point

Re: What do i do after grafting?!

I just finished my first Evie Pants and I agree...the pattern is kind of unclear there. I'm not sure if this is what I was supposed to do, but I just looped the yarn from the ball around the needle (in looking back, I probably should have done a slip knot, but it turned out fine) and started knitting. Once I weaved in the end, it wasn't going to go anywhere and the shorties looked just fine.

That's basically what I do. Pull a loop of yarn through the first stitch where you want to start, then knit with both strands for three stitches, then drop the end and keep going.

On the side of the graft with the tail, I spit splice it if possible, and knit along with it - no ends! On the other side, yes just put the right needle through, put the new yarn over the tip with the tail to the right, and pull the loop through. No need to anchor it or knit strands together. It will hold tight just fine and then you just weave the end in as part of the finishing process as usual.
