For any of the methods, if you are joining different color yarn, you can knit to the point where the transition happens and mark that point with a thread (use a sewing needle to actually split the yarn at that point with the thread so it doesn't come out) then, undo a few stitches and work any join so that the transition happens at that exact point.

Both your method and mine are great for joinging a new ball of the same yarn to itself, for that, spliting the ply in half will ensure the thickness stays the same. :D
