Something to play with

The Habu Kusha Kusha scarf was completed a while ago, I hurriedly wove in the ends and began wearing it immediately.

I love this scarf, I loved knitting with those threads, I loved watching and moulding the fabric created.

The pattern dictates light felting but I have not been able to bring myself to do this yet, it is so lovely as it is, I may yet felt, but for now I am wearing it un-felted. I am wearing it a lot, I love scarves and wear them often, the beauty of this scarf is the lightness of the fabric, light enough to wear indoors and out.

There is something addictive about this Habu stuff, go on, give in to the urge, knit with the thread, you know you want to....

Your scarf is just beautiful, and it looks lovely on you. Crazy as it sounds, you're making me want to knit another when I swore I never would! Maybe I need to give my old friend Habu another chance.

BTW, the felting only gives it a slightly fuzzy look. It's really quite nice and doesn't look much different than the "before."

The scarf is stunning, I might have to get myself down to K1 yarns this weekend and see what's left in the Habu bin. I love the sculptural shapes and shadows created by the steel.

It did turn out wonderfully!!! Of course, you're so pretty, you make it more beautiful. I am DYING to knit right now but I can't decide what to do next...too many options! This would make a lovely Christmas gift though!

Beautiful scarf! I wanted to reach into the computer screen and just touch it. And the color suits you well.

The scarf is gorgeous. I'm only JUST getting back into (simple) knitting after a long lay-over and am finding so many amazing yarns out there.

That is gorgeous. I'm sorely tempted, even though, having just finished a scarf project I swore 'never again'.

As I couldn't make it to Ally Pally this year, a friend picked up some of the stainless/merino and the stainless/silk for me... I'm wondering now where to find the superfine merino for the main part of the scarf - as of course my inclination is just to start knitting with the stuff I've got and see what happens! Yours is beautiful.

It's amazing what the simple stocking stitch can achieve!! I emailed your link about the Habu yarn to a friend. In summary, we are off the glasgow next month......

Ooh I like it - it is so sculptural, yet soft - is it as touchy feely as it looks.

Most excellent!
I really like the sculptural, ethereal effect of this.
I guess I'm off to find some Habu, you enabler ...
Very nice to see you, Rebecca!

Wow the finished scarf looks fabulous. I love it and have some habu for this very scarf, but I am not in love with the thread just the finished product. Hmmm...guess I better hop to it because my knitting gnomes are on strike!
