Here's a really cool video for you advanced knitters about steeks. Didn't even know what they were but I remember Jan mentioning it before. Look at the work on that sweater! Amazing. Got this link through "Knit Picks" a great yarn site that sends me regular emails.

Check out the gazillion tutorial videos they've got!

I read the name of the post and thought she'd misspelled steak and it made me hungry.

I have never tried steeks, somehow they scare me a bit, taking a pair of scissors to my knitting is worrying!

I have never heard of them til now, but I would not cut into that for a million dollars. When I cut into knitting, the area has been stitched on a sewing machine on each side of where I am cutting, before I start. I only do that when I absolutely have to.
