My gauge on bamboo needles has more stitches per inch than my gauge on metal. On mine it ends up being a very noticeable difference. I started a scarf on babmoo and finished on metal and there was a distinct line on mine where I changed needles that you could see that I had gotten a much looser gauge on. Blocking did fix some of it, but it was noticeable.
