Finishing School – A Master Class for Knitters, from Deborah Newton

This book will have you going from “OMG I HATE TO FINISH MY PROJECTS” to “I heart finishing!”

From patterns, to workshops, to tutorials to cheat sheets, Deborah Newton has done it all, and she’scompiled it into the gorgeous, oversized, hard cover book!

For example, on page 11, Deborah says, “Good finishing starts at the beginning when I consider all aspects of a design: yarn, fabric, seaming, edgings and all the little details necessary for a functional and good looking project.” And she shows you it all. So, it would seem, this isn’t just a book about finishing, but about starting as well. And all the little nuances in between.

Did you knit something that now doesn’t really fit all that well? This book may be able to help, including “rarely see tips for correcting garments with an unsatisfactory fit.”

What a goldmine! The patterns include a wide scope of detail work. Colorwork, lace and cables, pockets and zippers, cowl and flap collars, short row shaping, asymetrical designs, and more embellishments.

The only thing that would make this book worth more in your library would be a spiral binding, but that’s totally doable too!

Definitely a gotta have! And you can get it from Sixth and Spring Books
