Small Favors: Second in a Series

Spit-splicing your yarn is unsavory. I don't care how convenient you think it is. Besides, it leaves a crusty whitish film on your yarn and fibers in your mouth. Ick! Use tap or drinking water to wet your yarn instead of spit for splicing ends together.

Why I like this?

  • You don't have to prime your mouth to generate enough saliva to completely wet your yarn ends.
  • There is no spit smell on you hands and jeans afterwards.
  • I will loan you my scissors, darning needle, or whatever else you need if there isn't spittle on your hands.
  • It's just as convenient as spit-splicing, but much more seemly.
