Yarn: Habu Tsumugi Silk Combination A-110 1/0.9 and
Habu Kid Mohair N-52 1/20
The edges of the sweater are silk and the body and sleeves are mohair. The Habu Kid Mohair is soft, light and pretty easy to work with. There was practically no stray fiber floating about as I worked with it and it remained intact after the rows and rows of frogging I did. The completed garment is so light and has such a pretty halo to it.
The original sweater we saw at the trunk show was a light green, but gf decided on pink, edged with a darker red/brown. When I first saw it, I wasn't sure about the combination, but against her skin tone, it's perfect.
I'm really proud of this garment. It turned out beautifully and it looks great on. Yeah! I'm so happy it's done!

A while ago, I posted about a tunic I created in Habu Cotton Gima. I'm pleased to report that I've finally written up the pattern for it, and it's available for free on my website. The pattern can be found via my Designs page here. Here are a few photos of the top:
