An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever

Stitch By Stitch
I think (I hope!) the key to steeking must be to think of the structure of knitting. I'm securing each stitch alongside where I'm going to cut the fabric. I'm using sewing thread because I don't want to add bulk. Teresa advised me to twist the stitches each side of the planned cut as I knitted. I can see the sense of that, but I was too far along by the time I read her comment and thought I had better continue as I began. This process is going to take a while, so I had better get back to it.
