I'm knitting and knitting om my Ullared sweater, realizing that I am getting closer to the point of no return, when I reach the beginning of the armhole and have to decide to start knitting back and forth or continue in the round and make a steek.
Steeking is a technique used to be able to knit a entire sweater in the round, and when done cut (yes, cut! EEEK! Ahaa! that's why it's called a steek - the knitter screams EEK! when thinking about it..) the knitting to fit sleeves in and shape the neck.
Knitting a steek is a new challenge for me, I haven't quite gotten there yet but I'm researching it, and here is a great instruction for steeking.
