Boom, Flash, Sizzle

Due to a sudden thunderstorm last night, I am now plodding along on dial-up. My cable modem is fried! (I sincerely apologize to you dial-up users, because I now know how long it takes to load my image-heavy blog).

This is what I've been working on.

It's the Kushu Kushu Kit (Kit #78) from Habu Textiles. I'm using grass green merino and gray silk stainless steel. Did you know they also make a wool stainless steel?

If I'm not mistaken, Vanessa's blog entry about her Habu scarf probably managed to start the Kushu Kushu craze. Olga had already worked with Habu and blogged about it as well. Early on, I clicked back and forth between Vanessa's and Olga's blogs to try to figure out which colors I wanted to use for my own Kushu Kusha scarf. So when Takako and the Habu Trunk Show came to Twisted Yarns, I was already feverish about getting my own stainless steel and merino Habu. My knitting progress is slow at the moment, but it's the only thing I'm working on right now. I'm not the only one who's found this scarf compelling -- check out Nora's, iSeL's, and Kat's. As if that's not enough, there's a great Flickr group also.

Hi Janet,
Sorry about the slow connection hassle. I remember those days well. I tried to leave a comment a couple of minutes ago but I don't think it worked.
Anyway....I'm tagging you to list 8 random facts/habits about yourself and then tag 8 people.

Oooh, that's a very pretty combination and one I haven't seen before. I like it!

I hope you get your cable modem back soon...

Very nice muted earthy colours. It's quite fun to enjoy this kushu fever from the sidelines.

Boom, Flash, Sizzle - I thought yu were describing your Kushu Kushu scarf... )

UGH - sorry to hear about the modem. :( Pretty shawl - and coffee?

I've wondered about those on dial-up who frequent the photos-intense world of knitting blogs. Thanks for the reminder. Lately I've made my photos a bit smaller as I usually have several.

I haven't been bitten by the Habu bug -- yet.

You poor thing! Hopefully they will get you a new modem soon!

I do like that yarn and pattern!

What fun. And that's a gorgeous photo!

Sorry to hear about your modem. I don't think I could go back to dial up.

Heheh... yet another one bitten by the Habu bug. I love your scarf.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. You are very welcome for the resource. I just placed an order for some of the other Avril books from Amazon jp and once I get them I will post a couple of more photos for people to see.
