I am a fairly new knitter and am attempting a fair isle tam. I am wondering the technique that is best for securing floats so they are close in and don't get caught when you are putting on the tam. Help!

Hi there,

Here is a link to a video which will demonstrate what you want to see.  The video shows several techniques in the same video, so you don't have to go searching around.  http://www.ovguide.com/tv/knitting_daily_tv.htm  click on the picture for Managing Yarns for Colorwork Episode 306.  This should really help you out.  Wink

 And all the women who were wise of heart spun with their hands, and they kept bringing as yarn the blue thread and the wool dyed reddish purple, the coccus scarlet material and the fine linen.   Ex. 35:25
