    1. I have been knitting and crocheting for over 50 years and I have NEVER put a knot in my yarn. Always start a new ball by weaving in ends….a knot (no matter how it’s made) can come untied over time.

    2. I ‘fuse’ wool yarn by splicing old end and new end about 2 inches, then wetting my free palm and vigorously rubbing back and forth until fused. Makes a continuous strand.

    3. I take end of yarn thread into a needle and slip it in the middle of next skein I’m connecting with. I thread down about an in and even the two ends out. Slightly thicker but it’s easier for me and neater..

    4. I knot the ends but leave the tails of the knot long, then weave in those ends, along with any other ends, when work is finished. Hate when u find knots in a new skein, & they’ve cut the ends real short, so they poke out of your work & make it look less finished!
