I just learned how to join two pieces of yarn with the Russian Join. I had two partial balls of the same color, and joined them easily before making a new cake with my ball winder. When I knitted with the yarn, I barely noticed the join (just a smidge thicker in that spot) and don't notice it in the finish product. Videos are available on the web, look up Rusiian Join.

Thanks for the suggestion, it will be handy to know how to join yarn easily.

I have used the Russian Join ever since I heard about it on KP a couple of years ago. I love it. It is not noticeable in the finished item. I hate knots and for me, the Russian Join is the only way to go.

I made a huge blanket of scraps using this join so no ends to deal with and there would have been hundreds.

I have used the Russian join for several years, and have never had an issue.

Have heard a lot about using this join here on KP,
haven't had a chance to try it but when I do need to join two yarn will remember to try it.

Thanks for the reminder

I have been using it for joining yarns for the knitting machine as well as for hand knitting. Works great.

I have used it several times but it works best for me with yarn that has a high wool content--Lion Brand amazing, for example. I used it on some slippery sock yarn and made a scarf. Well, I can see that it is loosening and hope it holds.

I love the Russian Join. It's only a bit of increase in the thickness and it never unravels. Also, it's easy to do after one or two tries.

Not for me. Too much work. Have my own method of joining I learned from my Mother 80 years ago. I'm ancient.

The Russian Join works well for thinner but not the heavier yarns.

I agree with that it works best with thinner yarns,too. I love this join and use it the most.

I use Russian join on all thicknesses of yarn. I have shared the idea with many friends. One came to knitting group the other day saying she tried it and it was so easy only one she is going to use from now on. It really is good & simple.
