More on the Habu stainless/silk scarf
For those keeping score, this is not the actual Habu Kushu Kushu pattern, which calls for woolly yarn to be used along with the stainless and silk. For obvious reasons, that's not suitable for me. BTW, that photo is Olga's -- nice work, Olga!
Instead, after seeing the original, I decided to go wool-free. I bought two cones of the silk and stainless, cast on a bunch of stitches on a 6mm needle and knitted. Further details in the movie.
Why did I choose this as my Austin project? It was so hot, I couldn't bear to knit anything more substantial. I'm very pleased with the final result and will likely wear it Harlotting on Friday night.
