Check out the Borgeois'

Check out the Borgeois' techniques in Fair Isle Simplified, and the basis of their technique, the redoubtable Mary Thomas' Book Of Knitting, c. 1938, pages 85 - 89 if memory serves me, reprinted almost annually by Dover.

Every person I encounter teaches me more about myself. Without whom not.

the lace weight and

the lace weight and composition of these yarns didn't take to spit join. they kept sliding and falling apart

we won't just get a cat, nubby nu nu, will manifest a kitten from our love...and lint from our hemp socks

If I have a 9 stitch steek

If I have a 9 stitch steek for a cardigan, I simply spit join the two colours together so that the join falls within those 9 stitches - sometimes it doesn't but it never is noticeable. Only 1 or 2 ends to darn in depending on the design.
