I forgot my camera. :sigh: But you must believe me when I say it was a gorgeous sight. As always, Takako was wonderful: kind, helpful and gracious. She had extra yarn and sample garments to try. And she was looking cool and unruffled as ever, although it was an absurdly hot day.
Even though I have a healthy Habu stash, I couldn't leave without another cool little item. It followed me around the store and begged me to take it home.
Isn't it nifty?
It's rayon, if you can believe it.
It is fairly stiff, but softens dramatically when knitted and worn.
I am planning on pairing it with some black silk/stainless steel in my stash.
In other news, Faroese Muir is progressing, but my progress at this point is about as interesting as watching paint dry! Here it is all rumpled.
And as "The Blob."
As my friend, blogless Dana knows, lace looks like cr*p until you block it! :)
I am in the home stretch. So much knitting to do, so little time!
