An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever
Tuesday, December 2, 2014
I like to try out different kinds of fibre, in spinning or knitting, so when I saw this bamboo yarn, I bought four balls to try out. A friend of mine told me that bamboo knits up quite 'heavily' compared to wool of the same thickness, so I thought I had better look on Ravelry for a pattern specific to bamboo. There were several patterns that used this wavy drop stitch pattern and I thought it would work well with the four colours. I'm pleased with the result. The pattern is easy, but requires some concentration. I started knitting the evening before I went to the fair, so that I could take it with me. But when I had knitted and unpicked a row three times, I realised that conditions were not right for knitting right then!
