So I've finished the first ball of SWTC bamboo yarn for my clapotis... does anyone have any recommendations for the best way to join the yarn for the next ball?

I made sure to do it at a part where you knit3, so it doesn't get involved in a dropped stitch space. But it would be best to do it at the start of a row, as long as it's not a row where you drop a stitch.

I started the Clapotis 2 nights ago. I'm using old stash yarn, I think it's Caron Simply Soft.  If not, it certainly feels like it! The color is a bright turquoise.  I've only finished 2 hats before so if I actually finish this, I'm splurging on some good yarn for another one. Good luck everyone who is just starting theirs!

I joined my yarn by threading the new yarn through the old one, if you thread it through far enough it doesn't come undone and you just pull/tear the ends so they don't stick out so much (I can't find the parts back where i joined at all!!!)

I joined my SWTC balls by using the splicing method.  Just fray the ends of the parts your joining, wet them by using your mouth or a little water and rub them together with your hands.  It's strong, it stays together and there are no ends to weave in.  I love using this method with natural yarns, I just wish I'd learned it sooner!

This Handmaiden SeaSilk yarn is Sooooooo sweet to work with! Slick and smooth without falling off the needles when set down -- and it actually does seem to make your hands softer as you work with it!
