I have made a few pairs of slippers and the seams are now opening up and coming undone.

I am just finishing my last arm for a sweater and then have to attatch the raglan to the front and back.

I am nervous as hell.... I do not want to sew it up and have it come apart one week later. Or worse yet, first time tring to get it over my melon.

Please Help Mee :doh: :shrug:

Do you think maybe it's the way you are weaving in your ends? Here's a few links that might help you out.

I looked at those websites you showed me and yes I was doing it wrong.

I am still really freaked about putting them together, I guess I just put so much work into the sweater and do not want to mess it up.

I noticed as well that the back (first part I did) at the neck line the bind off is different from the other side and does not match up. I guess I made a boo boo

So I think I have to go to my Nana's house and get her to help me.

I better try soon, there is no use in the sweater sitting in a bag in parts.

It would be like buying a oven with out a door and never turning it on....

But thanks for the tip websites.
