I can do this but, how do you avoid splitting threads? Even while looking, sometimes the needle's position will split the yarn and has to be corrected by repositioning the needle. If I was not looking, I never would even know that the yarn was split and therefore the project would continue with the split yarn. This is not a mistake that I can feel with my fingers.
