That has been my usual behavior when I need to join two strands of yarn. However, of late, I have been working with 100% linen, on lace needles, making Filet Mesh stitch into a "wife beater" or male tank top. The method above, is , well....flaccid.
As I near the end of the first skein, I now have a small hurdle. What's the best way to join the next skein? Russian Join did not work well in experiment. Neither did the split thread method. The online resources are remarkably silent.
Any suggestions? My project bottom anxiously awaits the top.
