Don't leave us hangin now! That looks amazing! Something I have yet to do, but this is making me want to more and more! I'd like more info on the way you do your steeking. :D

You are certainly a brave soul. The photos alone gave me heart failure, but the end product is absolutely lovely.

manueli', I love and respect what you do so much!!!

So gorgeous... photos and knitting like your are what keep me going (first typed knitting... simply no time for that at the moment!) ... perhaps hanging on better expresses it!
I can't wait to see it finished...

I am curious; what method of sewing your steeks did you use that you got ridges like that on the sides of where you were cutting? I've never seen a technique like that before. I usually crochet on either side of where I'm going to cut.

ooo--scary. I'm preparing myself for my first cutting experience. Nearly done, will cut soon.

I may be crazy, but I love the sound of the scissors snipping the stitches. Steeking is so satifying. All the steek-o-phobes out there should give it a try!

Can't wait to see the finished product. The colour combo is fantastic.

Yeah baby!


i agree with alisa. the steek reinforcement ridges look amazing. did you pick up stitches through the fabric and bind them off?

i've never steeked anything before, but you make me want to try it.

I am just patiently waiting for a next picture, now! But to be honest, I CAN'T!

That is gorgeous. I love your aesthetic.

Powerful and suspenseful photograph...brave man!

excellent! I love seeing handspun knitted up into fabulous garments. Is steeking really as scary as it looks?

Wow you are fast. Its gorgeous. I want one so badly.

I love the colors I can't wait to see it finished, so beautiful

i never, ever tire of photos of steeking. I just love it.

What an artist you are! These knitted images are glorious! I have to hurry back and see more of your wonderful work! (I found you via the fabulous Swedish Petrao).

Happy weekend from Emily, an American in Norway

AAAHHH! Just the thought of steeking frightens me no end.

That's the best shot of steeking that I've ever seen. It helps to explain what it is. I can't wait to see the finished product!

Ouch, that's gonna hurt in the morning. Such a neat steek, Tweed dude. Good job:)

Be still my heart... I'm not brave enough to try steeking yet. Looks great so far, can't wait to see it done.

Nerves of steel - add that to the resume!


I'm jealous! I havn't cut my knitting in a while now and I totally know what a rush it is!!!


OH NO, not the scissors! You have got to have more than nerves of steel. No shakey hands? I would absolutely throw up if something went wrong with the steeks. But we in knitter/blogger land are all waiting to see the end result!

YIKES - scissors before bedtime. I'm going to have nightmares!

Wowza...I'd have a stroke if I took scissors to my knitting. You are a very brave knitter!

As someone who has yet to tackle steeks, I find that terrifying! I imagine it is a bit exhilarating as well.

I too am interested in how you did your steeks. I am about to do one on a Alice Starmore baby blanket.

Good job !

steeks? another tutorial please

Aaack. Steeks scare the bejeezus out of me. But you did a great job. You're much braver than I am.

YES! Finally STEEKS and no more purls! I have been DREAMING of whipping out some of my beautiful yarn and knitting up tubes that become cardigans, vests, pullovers with STEEKS. Oh, teach us to STEEK! Please!
