View Full Version : too many project otn.... how to finish

11-19-2007, 09:13 PM
Here is my dilema,
I started knitting last year after teaching myself to knit from Knitting Help.
I am not one to take on easy projects, so I try some challenging ones.
I have 3 projects that sit on the needles because I have no idea on how to finish them.
I am a chicken when it comes to sewing them together or picking up stitches to finish the neckline etc.
Does anyone have ideas on read the patterns to compute to my brain. I feel like a goof with all this work and I have no idea on how to finish them the right way.

Frustrated with OTN!

May I suggest a few knitting classes at your LYS? They will show you how to pick up stitches and how to seam. Amy has a really good video on here about mattress stitch (seaming). If you finish them yourself, you will be able to say to people who comment on your beautiful project "I knit that all by myself!" Good luck!
