Leap of Faith!

This is the Leap of Faith Sweater I knit. It is very aptly named, it was a Leap of Faith for me!  It is called that because you STEEK up the middle to put a zipper in! (For those who don't know what that means: you cut the sweater!) After you knit it up (which you usually knit in the round) then you fold the steek part under and sew it down. Not very hard, just very scary because when you cut it you can't go back and redo it!! I had Never steeked before!
 


 
 I think the sweater came out perfect. It's light but warm. 

 
The hood is my favorite part, I love hoodies and cables!  


More cables down the sleeve.


 
Thank you sister for taking the pictures, it was a very pretty fall day!

  2. Beautiful job, Mandy! I did that with two Norwegian sweaters I made when my girls were little. It was scarey, but I was supervised!
