WIP Wednesday – Steeks Baby!

IMG_1811

Today’s WIP Wednesday post is extra thrilling for me.  I’m going to do something super scary and completely new to me …. I’m finally taking the leap.  This is the week that I take scissors to my knitting for my first ever steeks.  Yay!

I’ve wanted to try steeking something for several years now and have just been too terrified to give it a go.  Each year in January I say to myself, “I’ll do it this year … This is the year of the Steek for me!” and then I chicken out.   Well, not this time!   After knitting the Mushroom Hat and receiving some kind words of encouragement from Adrian I’m finally ready to give it a try.

Last night, after I put the kiddos to bed, I searched through my stash of bits and bobs of handspun and found a happy mix of colors to cast on the Mushroom Pulse Warmers. I am flying right through that knitting … I’ll be finished this afternoon and will wash and block tonight … and am eagerly anticipating the steeking process.  Keep your fingers crossed, I’m hoping that I get they dry by tomorrow!  lol
