I’m glad you all enjoyed the steek cutting video. The secret is out: there’s really nothing scary or difficult about it. I sincerely hope that some of you who are holding back from knitting something that requires steeking out of fear of cutting will take a leap of faith and just do it.

Fortunately, the temperature has dropped quite a bit and we have a cool day or two in the weather forecast. Long may that continue.
Lucy likes the cool weather — great for sleeping.
