Today's SBQ is:
How do you secure your thread when you begin a new one? Specifically, do you or have you ever used a waste knot?
Mostly when I stitch, I just catch the thread in the stitches Im going to make. If Im only making one or two stitches, I will place a knot so that the thread catches under the previous stitches, and doesnt come out.
When I finish with a color, or even when there isnt enough thread left to stitch with, I run it under the few previous stitches, making sure that it is secure, then trim.
