Last night one of our Knit Nighters (Cricket) demonstrated steeking (eek!!) on her beautiful Dale of Norway sweater. She bought this yarn for this sweater just a month or so ago and is already just about done with it. Cricket is a wicked-fast knitter.
She demo-ed how to crochet an edging to prevent raveling. She is turning her sweater into a cardigan, which I think is a great idea.
Most of us covered our eyes when the actual cutting began.
Check out St. Louis Elf Donna in the group photo above. (In the tan shawl by the round rack, getting ready to take a picture of the steeking.) She came to visit this week, which was very fun, and I’m glad she could be here for one of our Knit Nights, too!
I’m still not convinced I could take scissors to my knitting. I’d have to work up to that in life.
Have you steeked yet?
