Slow going

This is slow going for me since I can only do a little at a time due to time constraints lately, but I thought I'd show a progress pic.

I am having a little trouble switching to a new ball, even though I read the recommendations some of you posted. It just doesn't blend in right... but its not bugging me enough to frog it.

You can see wear I switch to a new ball too but real obvious...I'm about where you are. What kind of yarn are you using?

Love the color of your yarn!!!

I'm using the Knitpicks shine in Cream... I love the color, too!
I actually switched to a new ball again last night atnd was able to make it blend in pretty well.... I knit the two strands together for a few sts, and then the next row I wrapped the yarn around the working thread and carried it in back (does that make sense?). It looks much better now. I made it to the decrease rounds, yay!

The first few times I changed yarn it does not look that great. Then I did what Melissa is describing for the rest of the sweater and it is much better. I still have a few tiny holes where I did the final increase holes and I must have done something wrong! I am hoping after washing and blocking, they won't show as much!! Cotton seems to show everything so much more!!
