Finished post-steek sweatrrr, a photo by trisknits on Flickr.
First this yarn was a cardigan that I liked, but which was too broad in the shoulders and was never quite comfortable. Then it was a sweatrr, but it was a bit too small, and I didn’t really like the blobs.
But then TechKnitter unvented a new steeking technique which I wanted to try, so I convinced myself that the yarn wouldn’t bear another frogging and reknitting and took scissors to it.
The steek technique is great, and creates beautiful edges, and the cardigan gives every appearance of having been designed expressly for my mum, who is much happier with it than I ever was. I call that a win.
