SInce I know NOTHING of the serious knitting you do this might be a stupid idea. Could you take it out to right before it pools, cut it, weave in the yarn from the opposite end of the ball? Does that make any sense?
oh ok lmao it must be the angle the pic was taken from haha i thought it was crazy long like a 40" cable or something or either i am very sleepy heehee

Re: Baa Baa Black Sheep Have You any WOOL... Tuesday

I have a quick question, after you cast on, how do you join your round? When I do it, I knit the end through for three stitches, then cut it and keep going. But I get a noticeable ridge on the edge of the cuff when I do this. Is there a better way to finish that end? Do I make any sense, LOL?

Tammy, I can see a difference in the legs, but it doesn't look too bad. I'm so sorry it isn't working for you!

Can you alternate the 2 skeins down the legs?
Or is that going to be an even bigger pitb.

Tammy...what would happen if you stop ripping out this leg, and frog the first and knit on with the yarn you're currently using...would they match then?
