How to join two balls of yarn

I’m crocheting a blanket at the moment.  It’s a basic style with groups of three double crochet (US Term) with a change of color every couple of rounds.  Maybe because it’s a basic blanket, I’ve found myself getting a bit lazy and just using a Weavers Knot to join new balls of yarn….rather than sewing in the ends.

So, just in case you also have the odd moment of feeling a bit lazy, here’s how you do a weavers knot.  It’s the perfect knot for yarn and is pretty much guaranteed to not come undone.  I hope you can follow my little picture here.  If you want to see it done, a quick search on Youtube.com will see you right 🙂  For the last step, pull the three strands in your left hand and the single strand in your right, pulling tightly.  Then just cut the ends off (not tooooo close).
