Seaming and sewing in ends
Does anyone else love seaming and sewing in the ends of a project? I find myself dreaming about it...craving it!
I love it.
Am I all alone?

Uh no. I avoid seaming if possible and try not to leave too many ends.

You wouldn't like to take in some orphan sweaters by any chance? Actually, I enjoy seaming because I'm excited to see everything put together. I'm not so crazy about weaving in ends but it helps to do it as you go along.

I like to seem and weaving in ends never bothers me

Poor orphan sweaters. If I was close enough I'd sew 'em up for you

Darn it! You're too far away from me too. I avoid seaming and would love to never have to weave another end again. I'm glad someone enjoys them.

I loathe seaming and sewing in ends so I'm always on the look out for alternatives! Especially seaming, any pearls?

You might ask around in Halifax for yarn stores who are looking for someone to do "finishing" of knitted items. MANY knitters simply don't enjoy the seaming (odd, but that's how they are) and some are willing to pay another person to do it.

Take an example of your seamed, blocked work with you to the shop(s) and let us know how you're received. Maybe a flyer/handout to leave at the shops?

This might be a very happy possibility!
