You're going to want to thread a few inches of your working yarn through that hoop and pull it so it's nice and firm. Weave in all the ends, including that one.

Here are some instructions for weaving in ends: http://knitting.about.com/od/learnto...weaving_in.htm

Cut your yarn a few inches from that last stitch and either pull the end through the loop, or pull the loop out. Then thread the ends through the nearby stitches.
