I LOVE STEEKS
This is my third stranded steek project and I am in love with steeking. Once you get over the "fear" it's an almost giddy feeling to take a pair of shears to your work!

The Pewter Fasteners for this project are on order but other than that it is finished.

Pattern is Arnhild's Knitting Studio AH 1005 New Setesdal
Yarn Rauma Strikkegarn 3 ply
Needles Addi size 4 circular.
Time to knit was almost 8 weeks but I did several small projects in between and had a 10 day vacation somewhere in the middle.

That's beautiful! I can't wear wool so steeked projects are iffy for me.

Gorgeous! It looks like it would take much longer than eight weeks. I'm sure it would for me! LOL
