I have to confess to not blocking my pieces before seaming, have been too impatient. Will do this in future,hopefully my finished items will improve. Also I am guilty of not knitting a swatch to check the gauge :(. If I had taken the time to do this prehaps garments will fit !
It's worth it to take the time for all these little finishing techniques becausse they contribute to a more polished garment. I find that doing a gauge swatch saves time and effort in the end. For me, it's an essential.
