Best Way to Join Yarns for Lace Project?
I'm using Malabrigo Lace to knit up an open lace stole/scarf. My problem is that my yarn met some type of demise and I've got several pieces of broken yarn (from the main ball) that I will need to use (for yardage).
How is the best way to join laceweight yarn so as to not show up as much in an open lace piece? I was looking at either the felted join or the Russian join (although I don't know if the yarn is thick enough to do Russian).
What do you recommend? This is my first lace weight project.
OTN: Scarf for DD, Cabled Baby Sweater for DS, Tuscany Shawl, test knit for a hat, Hippie Bolero (test knit...being a pain in the you know what)
FO: Garter Stitch Baby Kimono, Baby Roots Cardigan, Knitted Baby Hat, Custom Adjustable Felted Guitar Strap, Flirtation Cozy, Modified Knit Coffee Sleeve, Scarf, My So-Called Scarf, Baby Converse Shoes, Balaclava, Various Dish/Wash Cloths
