Many of us no longer have a grandmother or an aunt to advise us on the best way to put techniques into practice. Most patterns on the market tell us how to knit a specific item but often have nothing to say about finishing techniques. As a knitter, you need assurance that you are working properly, and will finish up with a product that others will recognize as hand made and professionally finished--not merely "home made." How many times have you worked carefully on a knitted item only to be disappointed with the finished result once you have put its parts together? "All Stitched Up" aims to take the "scare factor" away from your finishing techniques with step-by-step illustrations and photographs to help you to decide the best way to achieve professional finished results. The book beginswith a simple refresher class on basic techniques. Chapters that follow cover elements of finishing, from the best stitches for sewing to embellishment, beading, and color work.
