In meantime, I was allowed to start a new project. Here it's my fast growing Pine Cones cardi. As you can not see in the picture ( sorry, too much light), I am using the Bamboo yarn( Eden from Madil). This is a super soft yarn and the stitches glide well on the needles. It doesn't split as much as I thought it would, unless you unravell your work. It's necessary to be careful while knittitng as trying to fix little mistakes would make the yarn split. Besides that, there is a need to reinforce the tightness of the stitches. In my opinion, bamboo yarn feels similar to rayon, viscose and silk materials. Considering that these are their properties , my bamboo yarn can be rated as a very good one. Other than that, the knitted fabric is so malleable and cooling.
Despite the attention required while working with this bamboo yarn, my Pine Cones grew very fast. I was thinking that this yarn would be so adequate for summer tops. It would yield to a very refreshing and light garment. Thinking about fall knitting, I bought three lots of this kind of yarn in sets of 9 - 10 balls for long or 3/4 sleeves. So there is a need to choose designs that would require enough yarn that I don't end up with unused material. While excavating yarn in my "small hill" for a new project, I found several bags with leftover yarns from past projects. Unfortunately, the atmosphere was not as if I was finding unearthly antiques. Indeed, they were very unpleasant to my eyes. Someday, I'll need to think about a project to use them up. I only like to see unused yarn in it's mint condition. ;)
