Finishing sweaters is too often a dreaded task. Stop the clutter of unfinished projects and eliminate the sense of guilt as you begin the next. With this hands-on and empowering class, learn the secrets to sweater finishing. Learn the effects of laundering and wear on all fibers to achieve exactly what you expect from handknit garments, as you are will be able to predict change and knit exactly what you plan. Practice special ways to neatly sew shoulders; pick up stitches at the neck; begin and sew side and sleeve seams; invisibly graft ribbing; install zippers, drop shoulders, and set-in sleeves; and invisibly weave tails. What a great feeling it is when finishing a sweater is as fun and interesting as knitting it.
