Thank you everyone for your kind words:hug: Means a lot to me!
There were too many moments i would start pulling my hair out and then start talking to myself to calm down:rofl: I couldn't do anything while knitting this and definitely took a lot of energy and concentration. But it also was a lot of fun, you're right!
Thank you The steeks are not difficult at all, there's a sticky here somewhere ( i think on How-to forum) with a guide from Ingrid on steeks. I also haven't used more than 2 colors at a time. The fine gauge and the frequent color changes make it look more than that. I didn't even reinforce the steeks with sewing machine or crochet, just cut the way they were and then tucked them wuth whipstitch. I'm not sure i'm going to make anything steeked soon, but it's definitely worthwhile learning and it's very useful on FI sweaters (if you're not doing a yoke-style sweater). I can't imagine myself knitting a FI pattern back and forth.
