Too many things on the needle to cast on or even swatch, but I do have my yarn:

Anyone care to join me?

You know I am up for it...shortly. LOL

Any tips on using two strands at once from cones? Any tangling prevention ideas? Wind it as two together into single ball?

Hey Laura,

There is no problem pulling from two cones on this...none at all.

I think it would be disaster to wind them together. The silk will catch and tangle, and they will be uneven lengths...it would be a mess!

I would love to cast on right this minute, but I have things ahead of it...

; )

See you soon!

I, too, have too many UFOs to start this. Besides, I have no Habu. It looks lovely and will have to see yours - one of these days.
