Arachne Update

I finally got to the steek on my Arachne sweater. I was really nervous as I’ve never steeked a sweater before. I made a short video of the steeking, but realized that maybe having a 5 year old do the videography and a 4 year old say random things in the background might not make the best knitting video. It is short, but you can see me steek the first couple of inches.

I did a crocheted steek, which was very tricky on the black portion of the sweater. I was having a lot of trouble with the crochet, but then I told Marilee how horrible it was and after that conversation it was really easy.

Now that I’m past the scary part I should just get to work on the button bands. I might take a bit of time before I do that though, as I’m recovering from the emotional rollercoaster of cutting my knitting.

  1. I’m so impressed that you steeked for the first time with both children around! I think I would have needed complete solitude. Still, they did add something to the video! 🙂 And the sweater looks amazing.
