I remember someone posting how to join 2 pieces of yarn together w/ unnoticable type of knot when you run out of say strand 1 and want to add more w/ out having to weave the ends in hope this makes sense. When making shawls I have to add more yarn but want to stop having to weave several ends in when finished...

I live the magic knot. It's all I use now and have never had it come undone. Mary
