Knit with : South West Trading Co Bamboo in "Special Exclusive Colorway aka Serendipity"
- Denise #10 to get gauge. Which really run to 5.6mm. US #9 = 5.5 mm
- Clover #7 29" circular
Size: 16" for ease and because bamboo has very little elasticity.
Two balls of same yarn held together to get gauge. Or semblance thereof. Plenty of yarn left over to make a few washcloths. Total time? Two days or so.
What I might change. The outer ribbing seems like an underarm poof thing. Maybe an applied i-cord might be a good idea? Also, might rip out the edging to re-bind-off using #10 instead of #7. #7 gives a large enough but slightly tight feeling. Somehow modify the arm area so there's less of a wrinkle.
Easy knitting while watching tv. Getting gauge is the only tricky part as I knit tight and bamboo doesn't stretch like wool.
Bamboo yarn is pleasant to knit with and provides good stitch definition. Also a light halo and fuzz to the yarn. Easier on my fingers than some cottons
Indoor with dirty mirror
Gauge. heh heh Gauge. The two one skein wonders in comparison.
Will I knit this again? Probably. Maybe after I get some different needles. Just one skein is so hard to resist. Another thought- this might be an affordable Rowan Calmer project if you adjust for gauge difference
