knitting with stainless steel yarn NEW PICS!
Have I told you that I love my LYS? I'm the youngest knitter for the most part, (I'm definately the wildest with my bright red hair and buzzed haircut.)

Anywho... the owner of the LYS went to market awhile back and when she came home she was most excited about HABU textiles. A Japanese company that has the coolest yarns. Mixes of silk and stainless steel, paper, merino... just spiffy stuff.

Well these kits finally came in and she is letting me knit one up for the shop! Yippee! Its merino wool and silk stainless steel. The directions are written in the traditional Japanese way and just a little on the vague side so I'm waiting on an email to clarify before I start.

A few pictures of the yarn...

Merino (cream color)
Silk Stainless Steel (steel grey)
WIP on size 8 ... I stuck corks on the ends of my DP needles because the stainless steel and addi's did not like one another.
