To 'join' yarn all you have to do is knit the first stitch. Leave a tail so you can connect everything and close up any gaps.

When you worked on the thumb, you CO 1 st. That point is where you 'pick up' sts, similar to doing a make 1 - insert the R needle into the st or space between sts and wrap the yarn around it. That's all you do, then knit the hand sts that were on a holder or whatever you did with them. On the next row, knit the 2 picked up sts together, that will help close the gap between the thumb and the hand.

Okay, THANK YOU!, As, I THINK, I FINALLY, understand what you were trying to say, although I'm still lost on how to start this, as I have cut my "working" yarn...

It seems I am having a GREAT difficulty with this and this WHOLE part of the pattern, so as many people as can help would be GREAT! Maybe the differences in the ways and words chosen to help explain this may help me out a lil bit...

This is soooo frustrating! :( Every other time I had an issue, someone would re-word" it in a way that better made sense to me and I was off! but I am STUCK here! ...I understand all the rest of the project (well, I may need to look up a few this when finishing it aka. how to sew it and whatnot) but other than that? I got it! So I just wish I could understand this part so that I can get on to finishing the restof it!...

In need of A LOT of H-E-L-P,
Mindy

It might be easier to start knitting with the new end of yarn over the existing sts. Then when you get around to the thumb, 'make' 2 new sts by inserting the R needle into the thumb area. There's a video for picking up sts on the Tips page; even though that shows doing it on an edge, the idea is the same.
