Now that I am back at work I am back to being a monogamous knitter. I have to keep track of so many things in my job that I find myself wanting to focus on a single project from start to finish when I am at home. I am almost to the underarm and have just finished up my second skein of yarn. For anything heavier than fingering I actually join the old skein to the new by unspinning the yarn and respining them together.
In this case there are 4 strands making up the yarn. I unspin them in pairs, and then respin the ends together. I do end up with 4 ends to weave in, but they are half the thickness of the original yarn so they disappear when you weave them in - I go along diagonals. If you do it right you cannot detect it from the front and barely notice it in the back.
