I have passed the 10,000 yards knitted mark!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The January aran almost has one full-length sleeve. Well, okay it almost has 2 full length sleeves, but only one is on the needles right now. I'll fix the other one later.

The steeks are sort of freaking me out, so last night I did a little hand-sewing reinforcement of where I'm going to cut for the front. I'll still sew it on the machine, but this is "just in case."

I may not be cut out for steeks....

Congratulations on reaching 10,000 yards used! What a great achievement. And good luck on the steeks. Steeks scare the beejeebers out of me, but I know that some day I will have to face my fear, too, especially if I'm ever going to make a Fair Isle sweater.

I feel your existential steek terror. My current sweater is going to be steeked. And I'm...concerned...about how that's going to go. We'll see. I've already got as far as chickening out on the cardigan plan!

"cut out for steeks" har har.

I feel your pain, though. Steeks scare me too. I plan to knit a little sample and steek it before I do anything big, and even then, "big" in this context may mean a baby sweater.
