thanks and a question
I wish I had found this a long time ago. I have successfully steeked the arms and neck and front (this is a cardigan) I have not cut the front steek since I want to put it on a wooly board for blocking before I cut it and put in the front button hole and button edges. My question is this: what is the proper way to tack the cut steek edges? I saw it somewhere, but now that I need it I can't find the directions. This is my first fair isle cardigan. Thank you for the nice clear pictures and explanation of steeking. It does take nerve to put sissors to yarn!
