I've knit with it many times. It is splitty, but so soft and the fabric is really pretty and nice.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

so this seems... like more work than some of us need for our basic projects... is it really the preferred method overall, or would the so-called 'braided' or 'magic' joins also pass muster?
my knitting mojo is gone. it was already waning, due to time constraints, but with this current record heat wave in my area, it's near-impossible to knit while simultaneously two-fisting iced drinks. maybe it will return by summer's end?

I think that once again, it's a matter of preference. It's good to know about different joins because one may work better than another for particular yarns or knit fabrics (lace for example).
