Tension control?

I'm just curious how everyone manages their tension whilst knitting, I hear everyone has their own method.

Myself, I knit 'English' style and weave the yarn under my index finger, over my second and third fingers and under my pinky. What about you?

I'm Convinced

I have become a real fan of the "Russian join" since I ran across it on Kenny's website. 

I have used it four times now on the two pair of clogs I'm knitting up and the join really is virtualy undetectable. 

Thanks Kenny!
