Playing with Silk Tweed Kasuri
I couldn't keep my hands off the silk tweed kasuri from Habu Textiles for long.
This open lacy pattern knitted on large diameter needles creates an interesting effect for a scarf, I think. I used the lace cast on which I've read, although loopy, has a softer effect which is more appropriate when knitting lace. I find it a bit too loopy though. Any suggestions on suitable cast-on methods from other lace knitters?
And a bit later on, it's grown some more.
I love the colours which have something about them that reminds me of stained glass windows. I think the yarn is hand dyed with natural dyes. The card from Habu states that most yarns are naturally dyed with substances such as indigo, logwood, cochineal and madder root.
Here's an "I can see right up your nostrils" type close-up!
PLAYING WITH SILK TWEED KASURI IS FUN!
