Finishing Techniques
Hi: I'm just finishing a cardigan and am scared to death when it comes to putting it together. I'm afraid the seams won't look good. Any hints/helps on sewing together the seam so it is neat and invisible? Really need some advice!

That used to be a huge problem for me. I'd knit the pieces, but my seaming was awful. Then I discovered Mattress Stitch. Amy's got video on it, and I'm sure it's covered in books, too. It makes a fantastic, nearly invisible seam.

Welcome to the forum, by the way!
