Tonight at "Sit & Knit"
we had a "Steeking" demonstration
given by several of the employees of the LYS.
They had all knit some lovely fair isle sweaters
and then cut them in order to add zippers or button bands.
After spending hundreds of dollars on yarn
and hundreds of hours knitting
it was a bit un-nerving to cut into their knitting!!!
We all did a collective gasp
and held our breath during the demo.
