I received the nicest gift a few days ago from Janet, a scarf kit from Habu. I love it. The color and texture are perfect for my mood. One strand of merino wool and one strand of a stainless steel/silk mix are knit together, the feel is soft with a subtle, almost sticky body and in the grey color it has a chain mail effect. I think I messed up the pattern a bit since I cast on with both yarns and maybe should have only used the stainless steel/silk yarn to begin with. After the knitting is done the scarf is to be slightly felted with warm water and soap. I have mixed feelings about felting hand knitting so we'll see if I complete the final step.
I hope to finish it in a couple of days. It looks great with my faded denim skirt.
