home sick, but still productive

i'm not 100% today, so i am home. but, i'm still knitting.

yesterday i finished my 2nd sleeve of insouciant, and have since started the last piece (the front).

this is a silk tee. the yarn is made by habu, and i'm knitting with 2 strands held together.

i've never knitted with any of their yarns before -- or even double stranded --- but, i like it. and i can see splurging again and making another 'luxury' garment.

the silk is dry, yet has a luster to it. it's also a little bit tweedy.

i do have to pay attention somewhat, to make sure i've knitted both strands and don't leave 1/2 a stitch hanging.

the knitting is rather mindless.

what i'm hoping for is a big, oversized, sloppy (yet stylish) silk tee shirt.

if it doesn't look good on me, it will look good on schmutzie (she says, "everyone looks good in blue!").
