Question about steeks!?

Has anyone knit the CPH in the round, and then cut (GASP) steeks for the cardigan front & armholes?? I hate purling, really hate seaming, but love this sweater! Thanks! Jane

I've made a few steeked sweaters, but I've only done straight steeks for the dropped shoulders. This sweater has set-in sleeves, and steeking it would be considerably trickier. It would require shaping the steeks, then picking up and knitting shaped sleeve caps. Lots of thinking and calculating required. Not impossible, but...
