Purple bamboo

Here;s the purple bamboo vest I've been working on - i really like the feel of it. I worry that the weight of the bamboo will stretch the straps and it will become indecent, but i guess i can always unstitch, shorten the straps and sew back up. I've not blocked it yet so don't know if that makes a difference with bamboo?

On other knitting.. Ben's jumper is complete, but huge, and looks a bit too home knit - I'm afraid it's a frogging job and i'm on the look out for something else to make with the wool.

We had a really rainy weekend which meant that we only lasted for one race at brands hatch for the motor racing (shame, shame). And we didn't even run...which makes me feel a bit rubbish, so it's a fresh start tomorrow when hopefully the sun will come out.....

  1. I love the feel of bamboo in both fabric and yarn! I bet this is a dream to wear. Stylish!
