Stripes in The Round

I was going through some notes that I have and found this handy hint.

Knitting Jogless Stripes in the Round:

(This only works if you have a minimum of 2 rows per stripe)

Knit 1 round of the new colour.

When faced with the first stitch of the second round: pick up a loopof the first colour from the preceding row an place it on the left needle. Knit together both the first stitch of the new colour and the picked up stitch of the previous row. Continue knitting around.

So much to do not enough time

Well one jacket nearly finished just have to decide whether to use a zipper or some other type of closure,so started something else another jacket, onto the last sleeve.Also have started spinning again after many years,so there is the wool,alpaca and silk waitng to be spun which will mean deciding what knit up first,(and I have to find the time to go to work as well).

Keep up the knitting.
