Problem stopping water drip while sweating pipes

I have been having difficuly stopping pipes from dripping water when I want to solder. I close the gate valves at the water meter, but it still drips, which makes it near impossible to solder. The bread trick works, but it would be better to stop the water from flowing. Is this possibly due to the hot water expanding from the water heater?
