At Knit's End
All you need is to slip on that statement cuff and – argh! Your perfect look hits a snag – right in the center of your new knit dress.
Last time this happened, your fancy needlework left you with a hole new problem. Now you have a stack of sweaters that are hanging by a thread.
Expert seamstress Susan Medina helps you make a seamless recovery.
You’ll need: A Snag-Nab It needle from Dritz, which has a file-like end for grabbing those stray threads. Available in various stores for about $3.
Stick the pointed end of the needle straight down the center of the snag.
Tie a knot if the thread is long enough. You can also burn the thread down to keep it from unraveling. Ignite it and almost immediately, extinguish the flame.
Gently stretch the fabric back and forth to move the fibers back in place.
You’ll need: A beading needle, which is much slimmer and has a smaller eye than most, matching thread or yarn.
Gently pull the thread through (pull too hard and the fabric will pucker).
