since I had the same problem, and asked the same question and everyone was great with me, I figure I will pass on that knowledge to you!

edge to edge baby! it worked PERFECTLY you can hadly see it.

I should think so, but with a poncho it is a little easier since there is an outside and an inside, so you can have a stronger seam, there are some videos on other ways of seaming I think. Though the edge to edge isnt bad I have to say!

wow! you guys hv no idea how much this support means to me!!

ok, question: the yarn i hv chosen is thick..i thought it will be easier to knit..
i did the whole blanket in garter stich.. again, easier to knit

which colour do i use to sew??!! :thinking: it is blue and pink alternative squares...and i cant hide the seams..
i guess i shudnt worry so much uh?.. first project and all... :?? :D

When you do mattress stitch, the yarn you sew with is usually hidden, so pick one. For garter stitch you pick up the lower purl loop on one side and the uppur purl stitch on the other.

Ingrid, I wish I could spend about a week at your house just knitting by your side. I think I would learn more in that week than in all of the 3 years I've been knitting.
