My Habu kit finally arrived. I'd ordered it months ago from a trunk show at a lovely yarn shop across town.
These strings will turn into the Kushu Kushu scarf, if all goes according to plan.
A-20-16 lavender color (it's a warmer, dustier purple than it appears here). Silk. Well, silk with a stainless steel core. This will be the ends of the scarf.
A177-29 coffee color. Super fine merino wool. This, together with the lavender, will be the middle section of the scarf.
There are other things at the top of the to-be-made queue, and I'm not gonna lie, I'm also a little nervous about knitting with steel. So it remains to be seen when exactly this will get going.
In the meantime, I like the idea of this scarf having its own cheer - "Ooo! Ooo! Kushu Kushu! Ooo ooo! Kushu Kushu!" Who's with me on that?
