First, thanks again everyone for such an amazing response to joining this group and active posting . I am sure we will have lots of fun in here! I thought that my personal blog has been overflowing with Habu, taking and sharing and expanding my obsession for it here proves it.
I want to start by showing off couple of my recently finished objects from Habu. Couple weeks ago me and Vanessa has a chance to go to NYC and visit the Habu Studio itself.
As you walk in, on the floor there this amazing amount of little baskets/bins that are having leftover yarn/mystery bags to pick, so called Bargain Bins. I had been wanting to get my hands on one of other scarves from Habu textiles, after I have finished my Kusha Kusha scarf not that long ago.
And as it's a small project I felt secure enough to pick some fun colours to go together for a Shippo "Tail" Scarf.
I was lucky enough and with a great enabler, I have picked some possibilities.
The yarn that you see are Habu Bamboo Tape A-157 1/6 in white, Habu Linen Paper A-60 in light grey, Habu Frisbee A-19 2/28 in grey and cream.
As one can imagine working with so many colors was fun and still very quick, Shippo was made in one day. The only tricky part was weaving those papery ends as they are not very much willing to lay flat. But it all comes to sense when I washed it and just let it hang to dry. One can also spot another shiny yarn in the scarf though, I had found some DMC Metallic Embroidery Thread (8.7 yds) lying around and as it was close to the colorways, as I did follow the Habu pattern that stated: "Please be creative"! So I threw that accent in. I am yet to photograph it wearing it, but it's a great summer scarf or almost an oversized necklace.
