Don’t skip grits, particularly in the coarser starting grits. Get to 180 to 220 and then finish by hand sanding with the grain. The grain will hide such fine scratch marks and, as long as you sanded thoroughly at each grit leading up to it, there won’t be any random scratch marks.

Also, dye will not highlight scratches you may have left behind as much as stain will. Stain solids settle down in the scratches and they really show.
