As you've seen in Part 1 of the series, LoL-Retta Gets a New Sweater, cutting a color-work tube with a steek is completely and totally drama free. You'll note that Chuck didn't budge when the scissors went through the steek, that there wasn't a thunderclap (not that you could hear anything based on the pictures, but you can tell that the sun was out and the lights didn't go out or anything), and that, ta-Dah! the yarn didn't unravel. Pictures like my high-tech ones taken with my i-Pad don't lie.
So, we'll carry on:
Stay tuned for the last installment. Should be coming soon. By the way: if you have some wool (the real stuff), there's nothing stopping you from casting on a tube with steeks and knitting some color work in the round for a few inches, binding off, and cutting right through it to test it out... Just sayin'!
In the last installment, I'll try to show you different ways of doing steeks.
