Men's Dress Scarf

Here is a detail of a men's dress scarf that I finished today. It's done with Debbie Bliss Super Chunky Cashmerino on US 10.5 needles. I'm mostly happy with it. However, I'm a bit disappointed with how the yarn joinings came out.

Readers, I would really value your imput on this: when joining a new ball of yarn on a scarf, do you do it on the end of a row or in a few stitches from the edge? The book I was using said to do it at the end, but this didn't work out so well for me. Also, is there any special trick to weaving ends into moss stitch so they don't show?

The non-knitters who look at my scarves don't seem to see the joinings, but I would like to make them better anyway!

you are right. go a few stitches in. What pattern did you use?

Fredabeth: Thanks for the help! The pattern is from "Hats Gloves Scarves" by Louisa Harding. About joining a new ball of yarn she writes, "to give it a neat finish, it is important that you do this at the start of a row". So, that's why I tried it that way first.
