my new work
I need help
what should be there ?
Christian, Thanks for posting. I'd say go for the pullover. Keep us updated on the progress. JRob
The problem is that I miscalculated and the sweater is very very big :-))
I'd say whatever you make of it, it will look nice. Maybe you could steek it to bring it to size?
sorry what is steek. I don´t know this worth.
a "steek" is cutting your knitting. It's often used to cut the front open for a zipper or button band, or slits to knit sleeves into.
The safest way is to machine or hand sew a line of stitching on each side of where you want to cut. The principal can be used to re-shape a shoulder, or take in the sides, or alter a neckline.
I'm teaching classes on exactly that at Madrona next spring.
Feel free to PM me if you have questions.
I had never heard of this before now. I'm often surprised of the techniques I don't know considering all the years I've been a needleworker.
I love the colours. I was thinking what a nice throw this would make too!
