So I am happily knitting away on the lace scarf....

And then I see it - a knot!!
I have been hunting around the internet for the last couple of days looking for the best way to deal with it. It is such a tiny little knot that I could be tempted to just ignore it and keep on knitting, but I am paranoid (probably rightly) that at some point in the future it will work its way loose.

Does anyone have any great suggestions on how to proceed? Russian join (and hopefully a lovely link that will give idiot-proof instructions complete with pictures)? A stitch join (I have read of references to this, but still really don't know what it is)?

Any and all help greatfully received.

Try there. Just scroll down to the Joining Yarn Section. Russian join works very well, but I bet felting it would probably be the best, since it's a light weight lace.

The problem with buffalo fibre is that it doesnt felt.

I just read that back - what a horrible problem to have with a yarn! :)

Thanks for the link. Looks like a good one.

It doesn't felt?! Woah. My mind is blown.
