Wouldn’t you like to be a Steeker too?
Friends, do you have steek envy? Do you really really wanna cut that steek but can’t bring yourself to put scissors to your precious knitting without someone proving to you that it can actually be done without ruining said knitting?
Tell you what I’m gonna do.
On Wednesday, April 14, 2004, at 4:00pm Eastern Standard Time, I am going to cut a steek on Flora. In public.
I’ll be at my very favorite yarn shop in the entire universe, Knit Happens. And there, in front of anyone I can force to watch, I will cut open a Flora armhole steek and pick up stitches for a sleeve.
Wednesday, April 14, 2004. 4:00pm. Fear not the steek.
The body is nearly done in this photo.
What I’ll do next is cut open the neck steeks and knit the collar. Then I’ll cut open the front steeks and knit the front bands. Then the sleeves will come last.
And one of those sleeves steeks will be cut open in public. See above.
I did stop by the Knit Happens Grand Opening Celebration on Saturday — the place was hopping! Evberyone was having a grand time. I didn’t stay too long because a migraine was blossoming, but Ian picked out some yarn for socks and I got a crochet hook too.
And “Hello!” to the girls I met in the needles & crochet hook room who recognized me from my blog!
A whole lotta people have joined the Yahoo Group I established for the knit-along. Right now there are discussions of yarns and colors and swatches going on. You can join by following the link from the Ingeborg button in my sidebar!
