Would love to hear and learn new trick to this, thanks.
I knit that first stitch (when joining the first row in the round) with the C.O. tail and then take over with the yarn itself starting on stitch 2 of join. You have to tighten that first stitch only while you knit the 2nd row, but then it stays tight.

No knots!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
