40 WATER-SOLUBLE PENS water-soluble pens are often used for directly marking on fabric, but don’t work in the same way as a transfer pen or pencil. You would use these most often for marking guidelines. But you can also use them if you’re bravely drawing freehand directly onto your fabric. They can be good to keep around, but be aware that they tend to bleed into the fibers when used, making a fuzzy, indistinct line. While they erase with water, avoid leaving them sitting on your fabric for too long, or you may find they don’t want to wash out as easily.
Which is to say: don’t worry about it too much. The main reason you don’t want to begin or end your floss with a knot is because it may produce a lump on the front of your work. Fine knots on certain weaves may pop through and, if your tail has been snipped short, could end up being a problem should it come undone and need to be resecured. But knots have never really been a true problem for me, unless they were really big, and the fabric very delicate and destined to be pressed again and again.
A traveling stitch is one that makes a jump to a new spot when exiting your fabric (like starting a new point in your design, away from the last area you worked), leaving a trail of floss behind it on the backside of your fabric. This is also called a jump stitch. Seasoned needleworkers often like to avoid any traveling stitches and take care while working a stitch to only go where a previous stitch has gone before, following in its footsteps. Why? Well, if your fabric is light, the line of the jump stitch may show through the front of your fabric, depending on how dense or dark it is.
