Join Seams
Hello ladies.. and gents..

Now... I have a question... I just finished a pattern that said.. "Join Seams" ... now I know what that means.. but how would one do that so it doesn't look like crap when you turn the object inside out...

I would greatly appreciate any help

Dave

Here's a really good article at Knitty.com. Read that, and let me know if you need any more help.

Wow, Silver, I had never run across that article before. I am one of those, like the author was, who's been terrified of my first attempt at seaming. I've not yet made an article which needed it, but after seeing that thorough instruction, and the very detailed photos, I am no longer afraid of it. So, thanks from me, too, for linking to it.

Kelly, are you reworking Howie's sweater? You may have shared that already on your blog. I'm behind on my blog reading.

I put the pieces away for now, they are awaiting my learning how to SEW.

I'm glad it helped! Maybe one day I'll do a detailed tutorial on seaming. I actually LOVE seaming, almost as much as knitting. Once you know what you're doing, and can do a *perfect* seam, it's quite the little ego boost!!
