habu love

i was grounded last night by a good, long 
phone conversation with aimee.
so
when i looked at the work out this morning (before i go to work)
 it didn't look as hopeless as i'd been feeling
 little eucalyptus pages
 and this, THIS amazing paper and silk
habu yarn.
i could tell you how much i love this yarn,
but you can see, perhaps what a quirky personality it has
but you have to touch it
to really understand.
 i'm not a knitter,
crochet is the technique i prefer
so this little odd elk bone hook
that i made with jim croft
is getting her test run.
i think this is a new book.

The habu looks like it has an amazing texture... I need to learn to crochet, thanks for reminding me.

aimee said...

that reminds me of a silk-wrapped other yarn from habu that i loved using in santa fe last year, though i wish i had had more! thanks for seeing me through the night.

Habu is simply...well...too tempting to resist. I've several skeins of various yarns waiting for one day. Love the look of your Habu. And so delightful to find you're a crocheter as well. Enjoy!

as i was reading your blog, the thought that came to my mind was: imagination station
and a little tune played in my mind
i love how you can see something in something that most would see as nothing
except, that is, for artists
who see something in everything
love

Looks it - like just a few loopy loops.

looks like its going to be a really interesting book for holding and flipping. i dream of seeing habu yarn in person some day. nifty bone hook, too.

Mo Crow said...

oh you are crocheting with it! I just found some here in the Land Down Under last week but in black wrapped on white, yummy stuff!

Velma Bolyard said...

valerie, the knitters have it as far as cool, but i like crochet and my hands do too.
joni, you could order just one skein; u.s. mail reaches the north country, so why not alaska? (ha-ONE skein)
mo, yeah, i saw that, too. i couldn't buy it all...

What a wonderful crochet hook! An inspiration!

Velma Bolyard said...

jan, i am learning to use it, very different than the old bone ones i've collected
