This last post is the reason that I read knitting learn something. I think it's in my nature to always want to find better ways to do things. Thanks for the tips.


This is one of the most informative and thorough posts I've ever seen on a knit blog. Wow! I am so glad you stumbled onto my blog leading me to stumble onto yours!


The timing of this could NOT be more perfect for me. You make me want to tackle that sweater with resolve and patience. Thank you so much.


Beautifully done! It's technique and attitude that make a fine finish. And I found it funny that I'd never grabbed my seam roll when I seam! It will make a fine seam that much quicker and easier to accomplish. Then I'll have that second glass of wine.


This is brilliant! Thanks! I had never even heard of a Seam Roll, but I'll go out tomorrow and get one. I found you via the link on Franklin's Blog.

Cheers. Jean

That cami is AWESOME! I can't wait to see it finished - what a beautiful job you are doing on the finishing - I especially like the picot edging...

I really like finishing things and am so delighted to read about YOUR delight! :)


Oh sweet Cheeses! That man is HOOOOOTTTTT! Can I take him home? Franklin has the bod for that tank. I, however, do not and should be covered up with thick, bulky sweaters at all times. LOL

Oh yeah, this is in reference to the men's tank! YUM-MEE!


Thanks so much for sharing! You give alot of great tips here. I never heard of a Seam Roll. I will have to go buy one now! Your cami is very beautiful even thou it is not complete! Love your work.


Thanks for sharing your gift for knitting. Thanks for sharing your pride in beautiful finishing. And holy cow girl that man is beautiful, now thats finishing at it's best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


That is the best piece on finishing I have ever seen! I have a seam roll and tailor's ham but have only used them when steaming finished garments. Please, sometime, I would love to see you do a set in sleeve! Your skills are impressive. Thank you.
