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.

Malabrigo lends itself well to the spit-splice or felted join method. You won't even know that it's there. I wouldn't mess with the Russian join unless I had yarn that wouldn't spit-splice.
