I unearthed some funky, orange yarn from Habu while tidying up the new den. This is A-48, Color 2 and is 100% silk. The texture is wild and there is really no reason to use any kind of stitch pattern here, so instead I cast on 30 stitches and started knitting on the bias. (Rows 1-3: Knit, Row 4: Kfb, knit to last 2 stitches, K2tog)
There are places where the yarn is almost as fine as a thread, and others were it is quite thick, so I actually find myself counting on most rows to make sure I haven't lost any stitches, thus it isn't the mindless, knit by feel, project that is best suited to TV watching, but I'm enjoying it nonetheless.
And hey, it's orange! It'll match my car, and that's pretty cool.
