Joining a new ball of yarn

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!

thoughts on turning a flat pattern into one that is knit in the round

Gentleboys,

I'm about to start a new sweater (Nancy Salcedo's Men's Lattice) and am wondering if it would translate into a pattern I could knit in the round.

Any thoughts?

Dallas Knitters?

Anyone keen to any Dallas knitting groups? Knitting has always been a solitary activity, and when I knit around my bf, he complains that I'm not "in the moment" which I totally am, lol. Anyway, lemme know if anyone knows of any groups. Thanks!

Introduction

Hi. My name is Eric, nice to meet everybody! It doesn't look like there have been any new posts in quite a while, I hope this forum is still active.

I've been into fiber arts for quite a while, but I only recently decided to take up knitting. I also crochet, naalbind, knook, weave, and spin my own yarn.
