Seams

When I was at the Knit Out a few weeks ago, I listened to a tutorial on invisible seaming. They were teaching mattress stitch and kitchener stitch (grafting). I have had to kitchener stitch many times, and while I always have to look it up in a book, I can usually do it pretty well. So, I only sat through the mattress stitch portion. I had tried mattress stitch before, but as I suspected, I was doing it completely wrong (which is why it never ended up invisible).

More pages were added to Knitting Blog Rings today. On one of them, I found this great post about seaming. This sort of sideways mattress stitch is fabulous!

And for those who don't like seaming, check out this beautiful seamless sweater at Brooklyn Tweed.
