How do you end one ball of yarn and start another?

Keep an eye on the yarn ball you’re working with and, when you near the end of it, stop at the end of the row you’re working. Switch to the yarn from the new ball when you start working the next row. Be sure to leave a few extra inches of yarn from each ball so you can weave in your ends later.

What does rejoin yarn mean in knitting?

To ‘rejoin’ yarn, you don’t really need to attach it, just leave a long enough tail to weave in later and start knitting. The first stitch may seem loose but it won’t pull out and after you’ve done more rows, that will anchor it in. Just pull on the tail to tighten it up.
