Knitting Tips - New Ball of Yarn

Leave about 6-8 inches of yarn hanging down from each of the balls. Just continue knitting across the row. When you're done, pull up any looseness where the ends are hanging down and weave in the yarn end on the back of the fabric. I like to weave in the end by zig zagging along the back of one row of stitches. Be sure to do this loosely (it helps to stretch the knitting to make sure it's loose enough). Finally, trim off the remaining yarn.

You can also begin a new ball of yarn at the edge of your knitting where a seam will be sewn. After seaming, weave the ends into the seam.
