Russian join- a technique for joining a new ball

I learned a wicked new way to join a new
ball of yarn without any tails to weave in;
it's called the Russion join.
I learned this technique from
a helpful clerk at Romni Wool
in Toronto.

Instead of posting a long winded how-to,
here is a great link with pictures.

When I used it on my scarf
it resulted in a strong invisible join
so I was very happy with the result.
To me it seemed to take less time
than weaving in ends and
the result is much cleaner.

Since I'm such a novice knitter
I'm not surprised that I haven't
come across this before
but......

My question is,
Why is it that I'm not seeing
crocheters using this technique?

This is amazing! I'm starting the Babette soon and I KNOW I'll get sick of colour changes vry quickly so this might just save my sanity...

You'll have to let me know how this technique works out for you.
I'm very impressed that you are starting your Babette (a little jealous too)
Make sure you post your progress on your blog so I can cheer you on!

Callani, I tried to leave a comment on your blog but it didn't work...might be blogger or it may have been how you set it up.
