Bamboo Yarn

At the quilt show this past weekend there was a small "merchant's mall" and among the usual fabrics, notions, books and patterns there was one booth Dye-Version which sold hand dyed fabrics and yarns. They had bamboo yarn which was soft as silk and the colours were amazing. I'm not a knitter, I couldn't knit my way out of a paper bag, but I couldn't resist and ended up buying 4 skiens. They gave away a free pattern for a lovely scarf that only took one skein so I'm going to ask my friend if she will knit up the purple and turquoise coloured yarn for me as my Christmas present. She's already asked me what I want for Christmas and this would fit the bill perfectly. The other 3 skeins I will keep and eventually use as embellishment yarn on some future quilts.

orocheting is dirt easy to learn -- much more so than knitting... And it goes very very fast....

I've heard the bamboo is extremely luxurious, and may have to look for some, but I'm afraid to fall in love and have another project around here....

What beautiful colours I can see why you couldn't resist. If your friend agrees to making the scarf I do hope you will share a picture with us :)
