Stuck on a stitch? Pestered by a pattern? Feel like helping out your fellow yarn-fan? Come here to ask for, and give, advice about knitting and crocheting!
I saw a post about how to hide your ends when you make rows with different colour yarns.
Now I want to make one about joining the same colour into a project.
The last few things I have made I wanted it all one colour, so I had to hunt down a way of making that dreaded join to avoid the dreaded weaving in at the end of the project and keep down the fraying.
A couple years ago I went to everyone, including Bernat themselves, trying to figure out how to do this using Bernat Satin, my favourite yarn ever (though new Waverly is a close second at this moment). No one had advice, so the afghans I made all have these tiny bits hanging out cuz I could not get them tucked in nicely.
Recently I discovered the Russian Join. This takes a few minutes to complete but the tiny fray ends are no longer a problem! and I would rather get this done as I go than to have to face the ends at the end of a project!
I sure hope this helps someone as much as it helped me.
All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.

I like to use Jane Richmond's magic knot for same colour joining...video on her blog.
Simple but effective!
