Just the other day I've learned that funny idiom: "there's more than one way to skin a cat". Apart that poor cat (we don't have any similar image to say that in Italian!), it reminded me that, despite at least two other ways, I have my personal way to avoid the little "blip" of colour in joins, while working with two coloured threads.
I learned about the blipless join at first in Jane Eborall's page here: www.janeeborall.freeservers.com/noblips.pdf
Then I started experimenting a little and found another way to do it. I was quite happy with my join and got used to it, when I found this blog post by Frivole: leblogdefrivole.blogspot.com/2013/09/something-new.html
Anyway, the right way is what work for us, our "tool" is the hand and everyone knows their own hands.
So that is just how I do it, what works for me, even if - actually - it doesn't urge me to avoid the "blip" very often!
I've put two drawings in flickr:
