I'm not scared!

For some of you ,that are very protective of their knitting, the following pictures might be disturbing. So I suggest you turn you eyes and wait for the next post.

The good news, I'm done with the knitting of the body of my latest KP testknit. Proof is here.

Then comes this:

I know, it's scary to look at, but it has to be done for the greater good or let's say for you to be able to get your head and arms into the whole thing.

Don't despair, because this is the second time I'm doing this and it was way less scary than the first time. Trust me, you can get used to it.

Tadaa, till next time.

I'd be tempted to cut my arms off instead.

I can't wait to cut my first steek! I think it's time for me to find out why I haven't gotten anything from Knit Picks yet.

I think you're not supposed to cut the knitting needle too. :)

Purty! And scary. I'm at the steek on Mary Tudor. Can't go any farther until I snip.

Ok, call me crazy but I need to find a small fair isle project that calls for steeks just so I can try them. ;)

Yeah, I've never attempted that so I'm still scared.

That is scary, but I won't even touch fairisle, let alone cutting... can't wait to see it done

I just finished the same vest (only in different colors so don't worry about meeting me at the next party). It took me a frustrating amount of time. At least 3 weeks. I am so sick of it I can't think of my next project, which is usually the sweetest part of finishing one. Did you find it particularly long or fair isle is always an exercise in patience? This was my second fair isle project, after the East meets West bag which was so fast I expected this one to be done in a week too.
