Good for winter knitting?
I have to quickly knit my dd a neckwarmer to match her fall and winter suits, and all I can find at my local store, in the right color, is Bernat Bamboo. Is this a good "cold-weather" yarn to use?

I would think so but I've never used it. It's soft and should be warm though.

I've never used that particular yarn; however, I generally see bamboo yarns used for warm weather knitting. I did look on the Bernat web site and they have a free knit scarf pattern for that yarn, so it just might work.
Judge: Madame, either you will have to cease knitting or I will have to cease judging. Which shall it be?

Miss Marple: It helps me to concentrate, milord.

Judge: It does not help me, madame.

Miss Marple: Oh. Very well. (puts away knitting)

Judge: Thank you, Madame.
