I probably wouldn't make a knot because I know I'd have to work the ends in anyway. But, yeah; it's a bummer.

I was working an edging on a piece (had no more of the yarn; couldn't get any either) and fell two stitches short of several hundred. I took the whole thing off and worked the corners by stretching the corner stitches instead of working three stitches. I JUST made it with about two inches of tail to work into the fabric. So I totally unplied the tail and worked the tiny little pieces in all different directions. It worked, but what a pain. The corners looked dumb so I put tassels on each of them with the fabric yarn. Instant cure. A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.
