Bamboo Yarn - Scarf is Finished

My friend finished knitting up the scarf from the bamboo yarn I purchased back in the fall. It turned out lovely and is it ever soft and silky to the touch.

Some advice from my friend, if anyone ever plans to work with these skeins of yarn please note that you have to wind it up into a ball before you start to knit with it. Also if you can get someone to hold the skein while you wind it, it will go much faster. My friend was cursing the skein initially because she tried to knit from it and not take the time to wind it into a ball. It doesn't work very well.
