Just finished this. It was a good lesson on listening to what the yarn wants to be. I tried to make it into a halter top- it wasn't having any of it. But this is the perfect use for it.



I love this yarn! It's 100% bamboo and is gorgeously soft and wonderfully drapey. If I had a job, I'd go out and buy some more right now.

More information on the blog.

Thanks for looking.

*UPDATE*- link to pattern and such down on the thread.

I used to be strictly a yarn girl but now I'm teaching myself to sew.  Help! Smiley

The design is beautiful, and I love the colour and drape of the yarn.

That's beautiful! Did you use a pattern or did you design it yourself?

Also, I want to read more about it but I think the link to your blog is broken!

Sorry. The link to my blog should be fixed now.

Thanks for the  nice thoughts, everyone. It's really the yarn that shines in this project. I had such a good experience with it that I will totally buy more bamboo yarn in the future. (Plus, this yarn smelled really nice. I kept sniffing it while knitting, like I had some kind of compulsive disorder.)

Oh wow, I'm glad I'm not the only one! I work for a contract textiles manufacturer, and we've just released a new collection with bamboo fabric. I keep smelling the samples when nobody's looking, bamboo fiber really does have a pleasant smell Smiley
