--I have to admit…. I think I’m going to become a steeking addict! I LOVED cutting the knitting and crocheting on the border. It was so much easier than I thought it would be and so much fun! The finished cardigan is great! I’ve been wearing it constantly!

--Just finished the main body and casted on the arms. I’m knitting a size large to get a little bit of positive easy for my 37” bust. However, with casting on 54 sts for the sleeve, using a US 7, and my loose ribbing, it’s humongous! So, I’m going to rip the sleeve cuffs out and cast on for a small in a smaller needle for the ribbing. Then increase up to the large size on the larger needle as I get to the upper arm.

--The cardigan blocked beautifully and fits well. Maybe just a tad large, but comfy!

--My first time steeking was simple and uneventful… even fun! Picking up for the crochet edging was even simple. I used an F hook, because that is what I had and it worked just fine.
