There are a couple of sites with great tutorials on steeking. I haven't tried it yet on a garment, but I've used these sites to teach myself the process using a sample square that I knit specifically to steek. (I'm a bit chicken to take scissors to my actual knitting - LOL!)

Found this great way to avoid needing to weave your ends in at the end of the project: ... tting.html

Bad title I know but the tutorial shows how to weave the ends of yarn in as you knit along, rather than leaving it till the end. Made my brain itch for a while but I think I see where they are going with it and its a great idea. Will need to practice along with it. Shame they didn't do a video of the technique, think it would have been clearer.

Thanks to Techniques thread in Ravelry for this and lots more sites of tutorial interest :)

Enjoy :)
