This afternoon I popped into Purl to by some thread (for sewing) and Debbie, the owner, said that she had a book for me.
Apparently a few people complained about the instructor on the course I did a few month's ago there, and as the course tutors work for Rowan, Rowan sent along a book called Finishing Techniques for Hand Knitters by Sharon Brant for all the people who were on the course. I was impressed by the course, and got a lot out of it. The teacher did expect us to go pretty fast though, one thing I'm not so great at.
The book looks pretty good, nice clear photography and instruction, so I'm very pleased.
