Knitting sets your mind free and makes you see the other side of whatever this will be.....the purlside or the happier side of life!

I have always been a big fan of Habu yarns and Japan! So how much better can it get than to combine this with knitting?! I am using Habu's stainless steel/silk yarn and Noro's Silk Garden Sock yarn to knit a circle cardigan. Everything will be knitted on circular needles in the round  and only knit stitch (for my friends who don't like to purl). I hardly ever knit anything for me but I think this will be for me. I like the colors  and it will look nice with black.... I can hardly wait to get it done.  I am close to setting in the sleeves which of course I still have to knit but it's a fast project and knitting with the Habu thread is not as hard as it seemed in the beginning. It's a matter of needle! The pointier the needle the better.
I will keep you posted on this one!
