Steeks

I am searching for information on doing steeks.  Anyone out there doing them or had experience to share?  If you can contribute to any of the following, it would be appreciated:

1. Any references (book or on-line) for doing steeks;

2. Any experience you've had and tips you'd like to share;

3. The different methods for doing a steek; and,

4. How to do steeks for necklines, cardigan fronts and armholes.

Cheers!

Exotics

So - what's the most exotic fiber you've worked with, either spinning or knitting.

I am often tempted to get som qiviut, possum, yak, bison, etc.

And some of the stranger fibers from habu - pineapple? stainless steel?

but I'm too much a New Englander by nature and nurture to spend the cash!
