Russian Join

I’ve always liked Russia, it seems like a neat country. I’m not saying I agree with them politically but it is a place I would love to see, but this is not what the post is about. Yesterday I had the perfect opportunity to try a Russian join. It was intimidating but surprisingly easy. I love it. No ends to sewn in and it’s barely noticeable. Actually to the untrained eye, invisible. Soon I probably won’t be able to tell where it is when my overly conscientious eyes get over any imperfections I inflate in my mind. It’s always nice to set aside knitting only to pick it up later and appreciate its beauty as a whole instead of seeing tension problems where there are none. Here’s to knitting, and loving it!
