This is what I have come across also... fingering sock yarn is only 2 or 3 ply's at most and doesn't have enough to hold together.. if its wool you can wet your fingers and rub the two yarns together.. you would be felting them.. or just add the other yarn for several stitches like suggested.. its the easiest..lneighbors3 said:The Russian join will not hold well in fingering weight thread/yarn. There is not enough there to hold it. Do as another poster suggested - use doubled yarn for several stitches then weave in long ends. I had some sock yarn several years ago that had several bad breaks in it. My socks have not yet developed any holes.
louise s. said:I am knitting socks with Loops & Threads super fine yarn that had 2 breaks in it so far. A regular knot will be lumpy and uncomfortable. Does anyone know how to tie it without the lump, yet strong so that it won't come apart? Thanks.
