I love bamboo!!!
Yesterday I took back some Allure yarn and got Divine instead. I'm on a huge Divine scarf kick right now. They just turn out so beautiful using the 2x2 rib pattern. The scarf I made for myself was done on 10 1/2 needles, but the stitches are a tad loose. I figured that the next scarf I would use a smaller needle size and see if that helped. But I saw the Clover needles at Michaels and said "ooooooooooo I gotta get those!" I got a short pair of size 10 needles. This current scarf looks great! So much better than the one I did for me! Doesn't that just figure? Now, I would keep the current scarf for myself, but it's white and Lucy's hair would show too much. Plus, I still like mine.

I'll have to get more sizes of these Clovers, they're great! If you haven't tried bamboo needles yet, get some!

I really love Clover's bamboo needles too! I have a hard time buying anything else - well, besides Lantern Moon.

Oh, I'll have to try lantern moon sometime too!

I have a wonderful set of boye's that I just love...but it seems bamboo is really good when you're knitting ribbing...keeps the stitches nice and close.

I'm a bamboo lover too. They are so lightweight--helps with hand fatigue.
