First, I used acrylic baby yarn. Read: no self-grabbing properties and tiny!
Second, as I was doing the crochet style of steeking (because I don't feel I could hand sew well enough and have no machine), I kept fumbling to make sure I had the correct sides of the correct stitches. After having to rescue a teething child, I returned and promptly slapped my forehead, as I could just fold the fabric where I needed to crochet. (Not so hard! Suppose I was a little nervous!)
Third, I worried about the cast on/off edge, as I should have, apparently. :/ Kind of missed that first and last stitch and have loose stitches there. Luckily, this was not an awesome sweater that I had knitted, but rather a tiny swatch destined to become a stuffed dog's cape. :)
It was fun to do, I can so see the benefit of doing this for garments in the round and really, the cutting isn't that bad (she says of a swatch). For a full sweater, I foresee much anxiety. Calming tea during the process, lots of wine after. :)
P.S.-my hands/cuticles are really gross. Housework is evil.
