How to do easily do a seamless yarn join. How to do a Russian Join.

Hello my friends! I recently received an amazing(!!!) yarn ball winder as a gift and immediately got to work making my own multicolored yarn cakes. I must say, I’m in love. While I researched for the best way to seamlessly join yarn I came across a method called the Russian Join. This seamless yarn join has worked out so well for me, I just had to share a little “how to” here.
