What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't be afraid of the steeking. If you use the correct yarn, it works.

Thanks for the little pep-talk on steeking.... it freaks me out and I have yet to try the technique. Here in Iceland a lot of sweaters are steeked and then have a separating zipper sewn into the CF opening. Very warm, and practical.
