Book: Finishing Techniques by Sharon Brant
This post's Swedish word/phrase: "Ska jag köpa den här boken?" "Shall I buy this book?"

I wonder if anyone knows anything about this book; "Finishing techniques for hand knitters; Give your knitting that professional look" by Sharon Brant?

Is it a good one? What kind of things did you learn from it?

How is it compared to "The knitter's book of finishing techniques" by Nancie Wiseman?

Thanks!

I haven't seen the first one, but I love the Wiseman book.

I own a copy of the Wiseman book (bought after you recommended it, Ingrid!) and really like it!

I'm curious about the differences between the two books as I don't want to spend too much money on books that cover the same things, you know?...
