The Lazy Embroiderer... I shamelessly start my embroidery with a knot at the back instead of trapping the end under stitches as I go. I have yet to find a good reason not to knot, and will continue to do so until it keeps me up at night, knowing there are knots on the reverse side of my embroidery. For those purists I've just offended, will you please share how you store your skeins of embroidery floss, other than wrapping around cards made specifically for this? I can't be bothered to card-wrap, but I think there's a better way to organize than piling. Mom, stop laughing, that is not as enigmatic as one might hope.
