I didn't have time to watch the video, but when seaming, you use either a tail of yarn that you left hanging for that purpose, or a new length of yarn (just as you'd use thread for sewing another garment).

Some handy tools I keep are Boye Yarn sleeves.

When your skein or ball is coming apart, they're great for holding it together. My knitting is very interrupted & all the extra handling of in & out of the bag can make skeins & balls come loose. Wish I had these sooner.

stitch markers
I can't believe I did any projects without stitch markers. I am always paranoid that I dropped a stitch and I won't notice til it's so bad I have to frog the whole thing! They are cheap, not terribly fancy, but I can't believe I ever knit without them!

I never knew what these were for till I started winding my own center pull balls! Someone had a link for making them with those bath "poufs," and I use my homemade ones all the time! Just unwind the "pouf" and cut to size for your ball...and tie a knot!

Your ball of yarn. You thread the needle with yarn from your ball when you're ready to seam....just like sewing with thread.

Baby clippies! I use them for holding the edges together for mattress seaming. I use them for "mock seaming" an entire sweater together for a "fitting" prior to blocking and seaming.







BELOW: Checking length of sleeve#1 BEFORE knitting the 2nd sleeve! Sleeve length is critical IMO. A poorly fit sleeve can spoil the look of a sweater, and is a guarantee that you won't like wearing it either.


This is a perfect length for me.


BELOW: Before deciding on a sleeve length for this GROVE coat, I needed to know FOR SURE where the shoulder seams would fall: to the edge of my shoulders, or down over my shoulders? As you can plainly see, these shoulders dropped down over my natural shoulder, and I made my sleeves accordingly shorter due to that information.


BABY CLIPPIES rock! So useful in so many ways!!!
PS: they DO NOT hurt the knitting. You clip them just one stitch from the edge, the mattress seamline.
