Hi! :waving:

I'm really into sock knitting right now but want to branch out into other garments. There's a very cool sweater pattern I want to do and I really want to do a good job of it. The yarn's a bit costly, but worth it if the garment comes out well.

So, to that end, can anyone recommend a good book of garment finishing techniques and such? I'd really like this to look very professional.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Ruthie
