Habu Craze…

…has truck me lately. On Saturday I got two balls if Fique (FQ-1) in colour denim (20). I could not rest till the summer hat was done ;)

Pattern: my own
Yarn: 2 balls of Habu Fique in colour 20
Hooks: 5mm, 4.5mm, and 3.5mm

I have mixed emotions regarding this number, probably because I still could not wear it out. The weather here is monsoon-like, has been raining for over a week now without any sunny prospects what so ever. Perhaps I will come to love it later and will definitely take more pics. A couple of words regarding the yarn: it is FANTASTIC, strongly recommend to anyone!

The second knit was started last night and it is 20rows done. The lace motif is very simple but because I do hold the needles in a strange manner I have to twist a lot of stitches and it slows the process. So far I am infatuated: the colour is so sophisticated, simple, slick, and just yummy. The pattern I think goes extremely well with the yarn. This knit is intended for my godmother, who lives in Yekaterinburg (meaning a lot of cold days).

Just as I am writing, the sun came out!!!!

The hat is fantastic, is it scratchy? and how does a yarn made of pinnapple feels like?

The shawl is looking gorgeous, i love that color!
