Finishing, How or Why?
I've noticed that in the enthusiastic rush to working on a project that knitters often get focused on the how of a project before considering the why of some choices that will make their choices more successful. When developing a skill set that will serve you throughout all future projects it often helps to slow down.
Many knitters who have inspired me have shared the advice "begin with the end in mind" or that "good finishing starts at the beginning of a project". The first quote is from my mother and the second is from Deborah Newton.
Deborah's book is a wonderful resource if you are trying to increase your skills. I ran an interview with her here in 2012.
