I bought bamboo yarn to knit a sweater for summer. It is really soft and I think it will do really well. I had about 4" done when I found a mistake a few rows back. I started frogging and then decided that I didn't like the cast on and frogged the whole thing and started over with a different cast on. I really like the yarn though.

I can't wait to feel it! I can't tell much about the color from the picture but it was a good price and I want to try bamboo so badly. If I like it I'm going to order the bouganvilla to make something for Julianne. Whether she likes it or not.

This yarn came today. I LOVE it!!! It feels soooooo goooooood! I wasn't real sure about the color online but it's gorgeous in person. I have to brag while I'm here about Discontinued Brand name Yarns. I ordered this 10-pack of Bamboo and one skein of Sockotta. With each yarn order I got a free pattern plus I got a goodie bag. So, my grand total was $33.19 and for that I received ten skeins of Bamboo, one of Sockotta, two patterns, one Cherry Tree Hill Supersock Mini, a pair of needles, a pack of point protectors, a sample of Eucalon, a card with a pattern on it, and a Clover Products catalog. I think it was worth it--especially as I've seen the exact same Bamboo yarn in the same color for $13.50 a skein other places online. Now that I've seen and felt the Bamboo there are way too many things to do with it! I want more colors!

I paid $7.50 a skein at my LYS for the 2 skeins I got. It is sock weight. I finished the scarf I made with it yesterday and am disappointed that spring is finally arriveing here so I won't have a reason to wear it til fall.

I forgot there was also a pair of bamboo bag handles in my goody bag. I love surprises.
