Bernat Bamboo CAL
A few of us in the Bernat Forum are making a Crochet Vest, using Bamboo yarn. I am loving the feel of this yarn! So far, I've finished the Left Front, and am starting the Right Front now.

That's a pretty vest! It will be very flattering. I may have to pick up a crochet hook again. I haven't tried the Bernat bamboo yarn but I'm sure it's at least as nice as the bamboo sock yarn I have. The Bernat bamboo yarn looks positively luscious. Please, keep us updated with more photos!

I sure will! I am loving how quickly this vest is coming together. Tonight, I started making the Right Front, and I'm almost ready to make the Band for it!

Thank you all for the love!

Woofens, you can do it! I taught myself crochet by using videos online, and a beginner DVD from a craft store. I started in 2010, and now feel comfortable with it.
