Episode 4 – Set-in Sleeves, Steeks and Tudor Women
In Episode 4 we look a little more closely at some Alice Starmore Fair Isle patterns, how to steek and modify a garment to set in sleeves. We also introduce the new segment “Knitters of the World”, and there’s a walk in the German countryside and a visit to an old castle ruin. Enjoy!

Due to this podcast I requested and received “Tudor Roses” and “Still” for my birthday. I am ready to begin the Lady Mary wrap. One thing I am not sure about is how to cross stitch the raw edges of the steek. Is there a photo of that somewhere?
I love your podcasts!
Because of your podcast, I purchased Tudor Roses and Knowledgeable Knitter. I had to by used. And I don’t even know how to knit yet but I’m excited about learning.
