habu love

Monday, February 23, 2009

Besides the obvious reasons to cast on for a kusha kusha scarf, my boys came up with a few others......
-to talk on a habu phone
-to build habu towers
-to be a habu pirate

I think my boys are just as intrigued with this "yarn" as I am.  They can't believe that I am knitting with "string".  They must not know the word "thread".
I cast on for this back in November, however haven't knit on it much at all.  Picked it up last night while watching the Oscars and although I had to throw it down several times to watch Hugh Jackman (how great was he?) I managed to make some progress.  I have officially told the boys....hands off the habu!
Have a great one.

  5. Ohhhhh. I love the lace texture that is this scarf. Fantastic. And I imagine it's quite the dream to work through your hands.

    As for me, I know I'd do much better being the pirate and chatting on the phone, habu to habu, with your wonderfully, imaginative boys! String. after all, makes perfectly good sense to me. :)

    A grand Monday of youth & being to you. XO...

  8. i still haven't made one! i want one. it doesn't take long to get used to the lighter weight of habu and then the knitting can go blazing fast because you can do it blindfolded. great color choice.

  13. I have Habu love too, but from afar. I've yet to get my hands on some. But judging from your photos, it sure looks like fun!

    I agree, I loved Hugh last night. Overall, I thought the Oscars were quite good, though I'm still a bit sad that Mickey Rourke didn't win...

  16. Hahahaha! I was JUST sitting there thinking "She's letting them touch the Habu!? She is SUCH a nice mom!"

    Aw, damn.

    You got me again. I thought I was escaping but I can just feel the little tentacles pulling me in to Kusha Kusha land...

  17. That's my favorite Habu kit. Although I'm only 1/3 of the way through mine. Perhaps if I had Habu pirates, I'd get a move on!

  24. Pretty! Have fun with your "string!" I'm knitting a baby sweater with laceweight on 2's right now...the fine yarn is beautiful...Can't wait to see your lace!

    And wasn't Hugh fantastic?! I'm a huge musicale(s) fan, so I was squealing in excitement through the entire thing, lol.

  31. Love the habu happenin's - your boys are inventive! My youngest saw me reading this post- his immediate reaction was how wonderful the yarns are, but the habu phones! Now he wants to make one himself.

    I have some habu items as well - sort of keeping them for a 'special' occasion, whatever that may be.

  32. Since habu is way over my head I'm looking forward to living vicariously through you. I'd be dialing 9-1-1 on the habu phone!

  33. At least they are creative, right? :)

  34. Can't wait to see your scarf! I gotta get some of that stuff!

  35. Keep knitting my sweet. It will soon become your most treasured possession!

    PS: I build Habu towers also - it's the only way to stash them in the cupboard!

  41. Can I make a suggestion? I believe youve received one thing good here. However what if you added a couple links to a page that backs up what youre saying? Or perhaps you might give us something to look at, something that would join what youre saying to something tangible? Only a suggestion. Anyway, in my language, there will not be a lot good source like this.
