This may be a totally *duh* question, but how do you switch from your main color to another color?  Everything I've knitted to this point has been solid color, and I'm having a total mind-block on figuring this out...  Any pointers would be much appreciated!

PM me if you want to swap!  I need some stitch markers...

Finally got one...

Treat it like you would when you join a new ball of yarn.  There are a bunch of video tips at knitting helpthat you might want to try, too.

One tip is to knit your first stitch like normal with your new color then on the 2nd stitch knit with your TAIL of the new color.  It will secure new color onto the work.   Grin

Thanks, I searched "changing colors" instead of "joins" on knittinghelp.com, and it didn't pull anything up.  I'm glad I waited, I would have totally screwed it up...
