The reason I ask is, I was reading the Gr8 brothers' book Alternate Threads, and it had the greatest suggestion to pass the core shuttle through the loop made by the top thread (instead of the second shuttle)... which just seems genius to me.
For one, the chain is still adjustable, but two, you still avoid the "color blip" or whatever you call it by avoiding the usual lj.
Is there some advantage to using the CWJ over this method that I'm not seeing?
I can see now that it is not a lock join and the chain is still adjustable. I love how I can say something and it sound right and then find that it was completely wrong. lol
But it brings up an interesting question. Do you pass your main shuttle through the loop for the join or the secondary shuttle? Because it does work both ways.
Using your main shuttle would have the advantage of being able to use the technique with shuttle and ball, not just 2 shuttles.
