The Needles & Knits KAL students have completed week five of a six weeks knitalong class of the Valenzi Cardigan. Week five is all about sewing and cutting steeks!
Knitting instructor, Gabriela Dudas brought her trusty eighty year old singer feather light to sew the front and sleeve steeks of the Valenzi cardigan. Brave student, Fiona did a fabulous job handling the sewing machine and the tricky sewing.
Once the steeks were reinforced with the sewing machine, it was time to cut between the sewn lines and block to measurements.
Next, stitches were picked up for the front band and the sleeves which are also picked up and knit top down. Everyone's Valenzi cardigan is coming along nicely.
