Looking Forward: Knitting and Crochet Blog Week 2013 Day Seven
I have a confession.
I'm scared of steeks.
In my defense, who wouldn't be? It's unnatural to use scissors on knit fabric. (Actually, be sure to read that as "scissors on knit fabric" with a hint of hysteria in your voice.)
Kate Davies' directions require crochet. I know there are other directions that don't, but she sounds so confident that nothing bad will happen if I follow her tutorial that I plan to follow her tutorial to the letter.
But I really can't crochet.
This can be dealt with, of course. I will invite a friend over who does know how to crochet. She will help me. Between a friendly human crocheter and the Happy Hooker book, surely I can figure it out.
I like knitting in the round. I like cardigans. Clearly, steeks need to be a technique I conquer.
I even have a sweater kit to use.

Looking forward, my goal is to knit this sweater. I suspect that it isn't nearly as hard as I've made it in my head, and that I'll feel silly for avoiding steeks for so long.
