Thanks, but that's not really what I meant. I have a set of live stitches on the waste yarn right now that I need to slip onto the needles, as you said. But now I need to join a ball of yarn in order to knit those stitches, right?
My question is -- how should I best join that new ball of yarn? There's no old ball to join it to, just these kind of stranded stitches!
I hope my question makes sense. Thank you!
