Sweater!

The sweater for fredrickegerman is finished, yay! This is the first project I've worked on that was all worked in one piece (so it got a bit awkward to carry about towards the end) with steeks for arms and neck. Like most knitters, I am scared of steeks - you actually have to cut the knitted fabric, which is something that otherwise you never do, and it invokes terrors of unravelling and holes. Thus, I took several explanatory pictures of steeking, for those who follow the link. Somewhat ominously, the pattern only came in size Small and size Large, when a Medium was requested; hopefully it won't be the second in a series of sweaters which has to go to someone other than the original recipient due to bad sizing.
