bamboo cardi progress


bamboo cardi yoke, originally uploaded by Paisley Womble.

Knitting this top down means that as you work your way down to the arm-pit, each row gets longer and longer and you're not sure how much more you'll have to do to get it where you want it to be. It felt like another one of the Yarn Harlot's knitting black holes. But finally, the sleeve stitches are sitting on some waste yarn while I've moved on to working the body and the blob is finally recognisable as a cardi.
The bamboo is lovely to work with. It's pretty slippy, but even on addi's I'm not having too much trouble with keeping the stitches safe. It doesn't split and it feels beautifully soft and slinky.
