Wasn't there a scarf from this in Scarf Style? That was cool. And good for you getting to knit the sample!

Oh, a woman at a knitting group I went to once was making that, the scarf with the steel yarn. It was pretty cool. Habu is not my style; it's very minimalist. But I do appreciate its cool factor.

What an interesting idea - those colors are beautiful! I can't wait to see the FO and hear your experiences! How cool that it gets to go on display at the LYS!

That is so pretty! Is it hard to knit with? Does it scratch the needles?

I'm enjoying the knit tremendously, the fiber is very soft it is mostly silk after all... but knowing that you are knitting with stainless steel just ups the cool factor so much you forget about the silk.

Its not hard to knit, but it is slick. I had to switch to wooden needles so I could keep ON the needles.

do you get to have it eventually?
hope so.
