Hiding your thread; no knots

Working on a little mat today,
 thought about this nifty way to end thread without a knot.

Very useful for penny mats.


 

I take a few stitches into the back of the stack, 
being particular that the tip of the needle goes into the same space as it came out, 
but in a different direction.
 


 When you do this, pick up a bit of the wool stack inside.




Then snip the thread close. 
It pops inside. 
No knots ...a hidden back-stitch of sorts.



Always fun to share,
from me to you, 
Colleen
