As you all know, I've done a good number of projects since I first started knitting 15 months ago, some large, some small. I always run into the same problem. When it's time to add a new ball/skein of yarn (same color), I struggle with how to secure it. I have watched videos about the Russian method of weaving two pieces together, an invisible method of braiding, even spit splicing! Is there a simpler way to do this. Right now, I pretty much just tie a tiny knot and weave in the ends, but that leaves what I like to call a "scar" effect. (That may be because I just had my hip surgery!) I know it's really difficult to explain things on here, so if anyone has any links that show a good method, or a reference found in a book, that would be great. I appreciate any help. It's such a simple thing, but it is something with which we all have to do when we knit.
