Fair Isle Knitting

I love, love, love this hat (second photo here) from zeitgeistyarns. How gorgeous! This makes me want to head to my LYS, redeem my GC and learn some tips on fair isle knitting. How, exactly, do you keep the different color strands from twisting up into eachother?! Any advice from seasoned knitters out there?

This hat is just the right inspriation for me to get going on this.

make sure you pass the unused color(s) under the yarn in use every few stitches. this actually makes the twisting worse, but helps with your gauge. just my little fair isle tip...
