image_5 Melissa is bravely steeking her lovely cherry cardigan (made from Cascade Sport - cherries are held with Rowan Kidsilk Haze (strawberry 614) and Shibui Peddle (apple 103)). For this sweater, you'll notice, that Melissa is using the unreinforced method but will be sewing a reinforcement line closer to the button band and trimming the extra fabric later :) If you are interested in steeking, stay tuned for our Fall class schedule where she will be offering an Icelandic steeked cardigan class or catch her this October at Knit City where she will be teaching a workshop about the many different ways to steek (and an Icelandic Sweater Workshop). Be sure to stop by our table at Knit City and say hello! image_6 image_7
