Norwegian Sweater with Steeks

:cheering: :cheering: :cheering: :cheering: :woot:
I’m doing the HAPPY DANCE!! I finished my very first steeking project. This was also my first stranding work. It was actually quite easy and I have already purchased yarn for my next one!! Who knows, I might even get up the nerve to make an ADULT sweater!

The pattern is one from my LYS (I took a class) but it is very similar to many Dale patterns. The yarn is Dale of Norway Falk; 1 skien contrasting color and 4 skeins main color.

It was not nearly as hard as I thought it might be and the advantage of knitting in the round for the entire body totally out weighs the scariness of steeking!

I was going to wait til I had the buttons on to post but I’m so excited I could BUST. I owe a TON of thanks to my instructor Jessica!

That’s so gorgeous! :inlove:

That looks just beautiful!! You [B]should[/B] be vey proud of that sweater. It looks like everyting turned out perfectly. Thanks for the nice pictures of the project.

Ginny, you are such a fantastic knitter. The sweater looks beautiful, and you should be proud. Any chance of getting a pic of it on a live model?

That is soooo totally awesome GinnyG!!! Way to go!!! :thumbsup:

Beautiful sweater! I’m impressed you overcame that inevitable wave of nausea followed by panic that hits you (or at least hits me) whenever my knitting comes too close to a pair of scissors :shock:

This is lovely:inlove:

It was actually not as hard as I thought it might be. My teacher brought one of her projects in and let us make our first cuts on it. When I finally got to the “cutting stage” of mine I was so excited to do it that I cut away.

Holy cow, that is amazing! Great job! :slight_smile:
