Ohtay- here's the deal.  I am new at knitting and lovin' it.  I am working on indivdual squares (10"x10") that I will piece together as an afghan.  The question is: I am about to run out of yarn in the middle of a square.  How do I pick up the new skane of yarn in the middle of a square?  I was tempted to just tie a knot on the end of the exsisting skane and laugh about it later but decided I would just ask my crafty sisters for advice!  thanks in advance...

I've never done this, but I just read the other day in the SnBNation book about using spit and friction to "felt" two frayed ends of wool yarn together. If you're using wool, that's probably a good bet. Otherwise, I think you'd have to go back to the beginning of the row if you don't want a knot in your work.  Huh

well, you can tie a knot leaving at least an inch on the ends and then go back and weave them in, or you can do the fraying metheod (only 100% wool).

I went to knittinghelp.com and printed pictures of "the russian method" and sat down on the floor and gave it a whirl.  Not wonderful, a bit thick, (like me) but it worked.  Neck time I will just do the not thing.  Thanks for the tips.
