1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Join new thread? on: May 04, 2006 03:29:05 AM
Hi Smiley This is my very first post here.

I have just taken the giant step of learning a fabric craft. I *thought* I had picked a simple one to start with, but alas, there are many thinks that knitting books and how-to's fail to mention.

The main one is how on earth do I join a new piece of yarn? My cat decided to play kill-the-yarnball and i now have several pieces of mohair that I would liuke to use, but am unsure how to join them on properly. In my practice swatches I was using small reef knots, but I figured there was probably a clever way to join things up. Smiley


My plan is to use every leftover ball of mohair I have in this scarf. I got a bag of wool from my grandmother and there are many small lots that look lovely but are pretty hard to use on anything substantial. How do I go about changing colours? the same as just adding new yarn of the same colour?


Thanks for the help Smiley
