A Beautiful Fiber

Bamboo is such a beautiful fiber. It always amazes me how it can have such an incredible shine. Although it doesn't have memory like wool , I've made some wonderful pieces with it. Mostly I like using it in scarves or small items like camera, i-pod or cell phone holders. In scarves I like to alternate it in between rows or hold another yarn along side it and knit with both yarns. I have made complete scarves using bamboo but I did use a smaller needle for a tighter stitch.

Here's a pink bamboo which will soon be available in the store. http://www.terrabellaspun.etsy.com/
