If you are a beginner, intermediate, advanced, or a professional knitter, then the benefits of signing up for our free weekly knitting e-mail newsletter are:

• We cover hand knitting, machine knitting, and crochet.

• Each week you'll be receiving new tips and techniques.

• Daily, you'll be receiving a knitting message board digest with the latest knitting pictures, discussions and patterns.

• If you ever have a question or need help, you can always ask, and we'll cover your question in the following newsletter issue.

• Discover the fastest way to knit (and to crochet) a sock... while keeping the perfect heel and making sure the sock fits (not many knitters know this).

• Find out how to figure out how much yarn you need for a pattern if the pattern doesn't specify it (works for any project, a real life-saver sometimes).

• Learn how to pick up a dropped stitch, even from several rows below. It happens to absolutely everyone at some point. But don't worry, there exists a really simple fix.

• And if you ever run out of yarn, find out how to join any yarn in the middle of any project.

• If you can't find the pattern that you need, or if you don't know which pattern would be most appropriate for a specific project, then you can ask our other users to help you figure it out. We even have a dedicated "Pattern Requests" section on our website that's all about finding new patterns.

• The same goes for any problems and questions about specific techniques. We have experienced users who are always helping those in need with just the right advice.

• And of course, as I said it's all completely FREE!

• Let me repeat that. Since for some reason a lot of people contact us asking if the membership is really free: we are a social website for knitters and crocheters, so we don't sell anything, and we don't charge any fees. It's as simple as that.

I have hear so many of you talk about knots. I know that the Russian join is a good one, but sometimes the yarn cannot do that if it is so thin... like baby yarn. So, I will tell you how to do a "weavers knot.

First you make a slip knot then you take the end of the yarn that you want to join and put about an inch or so through the loop. Pull the two tails of the slip knot and you sould feel a slight pop. I saw this on Knitting Daily.
Happy knotting.

What do you do with the new yarn after you put it through the loop to keep it from just sliding back?

I love the weaver's knot and is the only one I can remember without looking it up and it works every single time.

People talk about the Russian join but I have never been able to get it through the center of the yarn so don't use it.

I've used the magic knot a couple times. It works great.

I try to end and start a new ball at the beginning of a row. It seems no matter what kind of join I do it shows. Of course there are some designs where that is not possible.

I have done this and it works. I have the instructions printed and in my knitting note book. I can remember this more easily than the magic knot. I did the Russian join last night on a project where I found a knot in my skein. It works for most yarns. I also use the braided join. The braided join works very well. I often combine the weavers knot/ magic knot with the Russian join. I make the knot, leave long tails and then Russian join them into the yarn in each direction.

I now use the magic knot - wish I had discovered it many years ago! I challenged my husband to find the join, and he couldn't. It works with St St and patterns.
