I am following Judy Gibson’s pattern for a Turkish String Bag, and using Classic Elite’s Bam Boo Print in the aqua colorway. It is gorgeous – it has a very ocean look to it.
Bam Boo Print is a very heavy smooth yarn in the hand – it is not plied, and is a little tricky to knit with. It keeps wanting to twist up and get kinky on me. Also, it is very easy to split the yarn and very very obvious when I do. It looks very nice though – smooth and shiny. A little like someone waved a magic wand over a ball of sugar n cream and dressed it up as silk. I like it a lot. I’m more then a little surprised that bamboo fiber spinds up into such a pretty yarn.
I am knitting this on size 6 circulars – mucher finer then the needle that the pattern calls for (size 13). I want a nice dense mesh that will show off how crisply this yarn knits up. I think I am succeeding.
I am running short on yarn though, and will need to go up to my LYS and buy another skein – only 77 yards per skein!
