Knitting with Steel

Kusha-Kusha Scarf
But my own, simple version. Cast-on, knit, cast-off.
Yarn: Habu Wool-Stainless Steel, Knit Picks Lace in Sunset.
I overdyed the merino in the hopes of getting more complimentary colors; I may throw the whole thing back in dye when I finish.
I love the simplicity, although it's not something I would usually begin. I found the stainless steel at Habu a few weeks ago and couldn't pass it up. It will be my first journey into felting, so hopefully it will benefit from the process.

So what does the stainless feel like? It just seems so... odd to knit with. I can't wait for the FO!

Hello, I read a comment you left on my blog and so came to have a look. Your knitting is gorgeous! I've read about the stainless steel yarn but have never held it in my hands. Your dragon socks and Koolhaas hat are beautifully knitted, I'll be back to have another look soon.
