I'm so weak

Ok, I'll admit it... I am weak. I just signed up for Melanie's Mystery Stole 3.

... but I just couldn't help my self my resistance to a new stole project was low and looked like so much fun. So I picked out 3 cones of creamy white Habu Tsumugi Silk, my new Knit Picks US 4s and before I knew it I was doing the swatch.

It went up quickly and blocked beautifully. Fortunately this doesn't start until the 29th so I can finish up the VLT French Trellis Scarf ... which have been working on and last night finished the 3rd of 8 repeats for the first border. I should be well into the 5th or maybe even 6th repeat by the end of the night. I just switched from my Colonial Rosewoods US6 to the Knit Picks US6 I just got in the mail and it's going much faster plus I'm getting more comfortable with this slightly challenging border pattern.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

Hi, I signed up for this too. I've been looking at your Habu silk. Is the white a bright white or softer? What do you think of the cream? thanks.
