Tip #1: Securing Stitches While Not Knitting

TIP #1:

I NEVER lose any more stitches on my knitting needles (DPNs shown below), which can tend to slide off in your knitting bag left untethered. 
TIP: align needles together so they all lay side by side & wind yarn a couple of times around the needles one side of your work, pull yarn to other side and wrap a couple of times. Twist the last wrap once (like a backwards "e") for a secure hold.

Works like a charm and no need to pry the stitch holder out of my dog’s mouth ;o)
