Usually I stick to knitting one item at a time but as I'm going to be away for 5 weeks I swatched and felted for the Habu Kit # 74 (Angora and Cotton Pullover). I'll work on both at the same time and felt and assemble them when I return.
If you've been interested in using the Habu yarns for a sweater but been a bit intimidated by them the angora and cotton would be a great place to start. The fiber is more traditionlly yarn like and less sproingy than the stainless steel silk. The drape and softness is amazing too.
I used 6mm needles (US 10) and got 50% length shrinkage again and hardly any width shrinkage. Because I like narrow sleeves I'll cast on 35 stitches for each sleeve, knit 9 inches straight and then begin the sleeve increases - likely one each side every sixth row.
For those who have heard the Habu patterns are hard to follow I have to say this isn't my experience of them. After taking a few minutes to understand how it's all laid out it's quite logical.
