Joining cast-on ends on a circular knitting project

Does anyone have a tip or trick of a good way to join the
cast-on ends of circular knitting without the stitches twisting?

Starting to think about Christmas!

I'm hoping it's not already too late, but I'm considering giving everyone on my Christmas List a hat knitted by me. I have ten people on my list and they could all receive the same hat or I could challenge myself and make ten different hats. I don't want any fights on Christmas morning on who got the better hat.

knitting cruises

I just noticed that one of the advertisements on this blog is for "knitting cruises." Has anyone been on one of these?

Another QOTD

Why does stockinette stitch curl? And what can I change
to maybe minimize the curl?

I've seen some stockinette stitch pieces that just seem to
lay perfectly flat. Mine curl immediately.
