Hello all! I'm having trouble tying two ends of my elastic thread together, the knot just keeps slipping! Undecided I was wondering if there is some special knot to use so it won't. Any ideas? Much thanks in advance for you help!

I usually use what I call a surgeon's knot.  It is basically a square knot but instead of just doing one left over right for the final bit, I go around three or four times.

And if all else fails, a little dab of super glue works wonders!
