Once I got used to the idea of knitting an eyelash with dental floss my GRAPHITE scarf was like “knitting yoga”…an almost Zen experience. Using HABU silk wrapped stainless steel knit together with their root sizing silk ( http://habutextiles.com/N-6B) and a triangular scarf pattern for inspiration (  http://www.pickles.no/simple-luxury-scarf/ ) I was deep into it…and more than once. The result  was as interesting as I had imagined…light, airy and sophisticated. Over a turtleneck, with a white shirt or to fill in the neckline of a blazer or jacket…Graphite is an accessory scarf to transition to the warmer months ahead. And, as always…the best in simple, quiet and modern.

I thought my sticks were going to ignite as I worked to complete this in time for Christmas giving. Done and done. A simple triangular scarf combining Habu Silk Wrapped Stainless with Plymouth Baby Alpaca Lace. I love the modern result.
