Good point about the multiple joins. Right now I'm using the scraps of yarn to practice, rather than risk trying a new procedure on my current project.

I'm guessing the Russian join may not be good for a project that is double-stranded? That would make it too bulky, right? Or perhaps you could join each strand in a different place?
