Spit is best in the right place

I used a spit splice for the first time last night. I’m working with this lovely alpaca yarn, and thought it would be the perfect opportunity and place for a spit splice. I very carefully overlapped about 5 inches of yarn and used lots of spit and friction. I continued knitting, satisfied with myself, for about two stitches. Then the end of the working yarn reached my hand. I very carefully spliced the new ball to the cast-on tail.

Belly laughs for all!

(Yes, of course I fixed it. Easy enough to do.)
