    Your sweater is just beautiful! My heart was pounding while you cut your steek. Thanks so much for showing us how it’s done.

    It was like watching a surgery. I am glad the sweater survived and there was no major cutting of an artery. The sweater is beautiful. Great colors and it looks warm.

    I’ve never steeked but you made it look very comfortable – couldn’t tell if the scotch was because you were nervous about cutting, or because you were cutting with a camera in your ear – lol 😀 Lovely sweater …. I’m glad all worked out.

    I think that I’d need a scotch (or two) before atempting a steek myself.

    Dear Kat:

    Thanks for the demo on steeking. I never wanted to try it but after seeing your video, maybe I’ll give it a try. I got the book The Sweater Workshop so I hope that will help.

    I laughed out loud when you took a sip of scotch at the end—that’s exactly what I would have wanted after such a nerve-wrecking thing as cutting into your knitting!!! The sweater is gorgeous and the tutorial VERY helpful, as always. Thank you for all that you and Eric do. I am always happy and excited when I see that you have posted another video. You encourage me to try more adventurous knitting than I would otherwise dare on my own.

    the cutting stitch by stitch was so wonderful to “see” — thanks so much! And only knitters would understand about the “sip” needed at the end LOL

    But BIG congratulations on getting your work displayed — more exposure to our wonderful craft (and your examples are stunning).

    Very enjoyable watching your videos! Brings a smile to my face every time. I was a little nervous when I saw you cutting your sweater. I have heard of this, but didn’t know there was a name for it and never saw it in action. Don’t think I am ready for this yet! Maybe one day!

    Great tutorial. Thanks!
