Hrm.

I am kind of sort of maybe (okay, definitely) rethinking my Habu project

habu!
It’s not that I don’t like the yarn, BUT, the knit up fabric is very thin.  Which is also not in and  of itself problematic.  However, the more I think about it, the more and more I realize the project I originally envisioned with this yarn somehow had it a bit thicker, and that extra thickness really is integral to that particular vision.  In other words:  This Thing Is Not Really Working Out, But It’s Not You, It’s Me.  So now I have two options (that I’ve thought of so far).

1.  Double strand the silk yarn and go on with the originally planned project.  I’ve made a swatch to that end:

Pros: I’ll get the piece I originally envisioned.  Cons: I’ll have to buy quite a bit more silk.

2.  Double strand the yarn but make a new, less yarn intensive project.  Pros: Don’t have to buy as much new yarn, also will not be knitting piece forever as is likely to occur at current gauge.  Cons: Good chance I’ll still have to buy some more yarn, just not as much.

3.  Think of a new design that is suitable for current gauge.  Pro:  Definitely won’t have to buy more yarn.  Con:  Have to think of new design.  Although I do have some ideas.
