Sue Booth on Finishing
Sue is always a popular demonstrator at our club, and today was no exception.
She showed us some of her finishing techniques, and even experienced knitters were taking heed of them.
First, she went through steaming, using a blocking board, and very little contact with the iron. She was mainly using acrylic fibre, and the difference between good finishing and poor finishing was astounding.
During the demonstration she told us which sewing stitches she used for various seams and edges, and went on to look at inserting zips, between layers of edging and on top of an edge
She showed us useful edges for bands and necklines, including some decorative touches, and finished with her ‘cheats’ buttonholes’, which use a double band technique.
Another inspiring session!
