    The 3 skein method makes perfect sense when seeing it on the white board. Thank you for that.

    Thanks for the great idea. I hadn’t even thought about different ways to join in yarns. This eliminates the 3-5 double stitches or loose join in points at the beginning of a row. Thanks again. Naomi
