Netherland's Scarf. Am I doing this right?
First of all, as background, I'm knitting it vertically, for one. But this way I only have to switch colors four times instead of a billion. XD These are my dimensions:
5 stripes; blue, white, blue, white, blue. 294 stitches per row (7 ft). 8 rows per stripe.
I'm using 2, 19", size 9 circulars and garter stitching. The yarn is Vanna's Choice.
So. The reason I'm freaking out is because I just finished what I assumed to be 8 rows on my second color (white), but the yarn finished on the other side. Here are some pictures to illustrate:

|Where I started (beginning):||The back of the beginning:|
|Where I left off (end):||The back of the end:|
So can anyone tell me if I have indeed stitched 8 rows of each? Is it normal for the yarn to end on a different end? I'm I freaking out over nothing?? HELP.

EDIT: Thank you!! I counted the CO with my rows. orz I'm taking a row out so that it'll be even. c: Thank you again~~
