How do you join a new ball of wool in knitting at the end of a row?
To join yarn at an edge, you can use either of these methods:

How do you twist two strands of yarn together?
Hold the 2 thinnest yarns together with one set of fingers and then hold the other 2 separately. Keep the yarns even and pull a length of both from the ball. Take the spindle in your right hand and the yarns in your left hand and begin by spinning the drop spindle from the shaft in the proper direction.
