I did Eunny's Deep V Vest early this year and that was my first exposure to steeking. When I was cutting the steeks on that vest I carefully snipped the yarn and held my breath the whole time.

Especially since this yarn is so sticky--I promise, it won't unravel.
I am done with the body of the sweater and am on the left sleeve. I am hoping to have it all done and seemed by next week. Here is the body blocking for your viewing pleasure:
