Managing knitting with colours

It is easy to get lost vertically in the section of the blanket that has the blue motif. To manage this, I hide the following rows in the diagram with a sheet of paper, like this:

This way, what I see on the paper corresponds to what I'm holding in my hand. The following rows are not knitted yet, and I get confused seeing them them. This isn't exactly a pattern where you see the motif until you are done, so my eyes wander back and forth from the paper to the knitting, and I really needed this little help.

To keep track on the rapports horisontally, place markers are invaluable. At least when the pattern is this intricate.
