Ive been crocheting for over 40 yrs and have always done a similar color change but YOUR way makes it so much easier. Thank you

Thank you, thank you, thank you! My neighbor asked if I would crochet an American flag. Well, this thing is HUGE with lots of color changes, particularly mid-stripe when you get to the blue. You saved me lots of stress and all my work was not for nothing!

What happens to the Gray Yarn?

You can fasten it off and weave it in if you don't need the color anymore. You can work over the grey if you intend to pick it up later. It all depends on what the pattern calls for.
