I’m having fun knitting this necklace out of the stainless steel/silk yarns (threads?) from Habu Textiles in New York. The pattern is from a book using Habu yarns: “Ori Ami Knits”. I had to learn to do “short rows” and it is fun learning something new (and easy). I had yarn left from my sweater then needed a second strand of another color for the necklace so needed another cone. I guess this is how a stash begins.

  1. No one would believe that you are a beginning knitter! I’m stuck on a chart for my grandson’s Nordic sweater. Maybe I should ask you to interpret it for me. If you have questions about yarn weights, etc., I’d be very glad to help.

    There’s a great site called that has tons of helpful videos of knitting techniques. I still go there on occasion.

    You are doing fantastic!
