Bamboo/ Inspire Me Thursday

This is a lovely green bag that I knit with a pair of bamboo knitting needles. I love to work with bamboo as the yarn just slips off the wood so easily but not too easily. It makes knitting easier for me because I am a flinger. I am always in awe of people who can knit with both hands on the needles the whole time, my needles are always falling and sometimes losing stitches. Just like real life, out there without a safety net. Not too much else to add about the pleasure of bamboo but it does make a knitter's life easier(and happier).

I've really gotten so used to bamboo needles! I have a new project on a stainless steel circular needle and it's driving me crazy! It's so slippery - it's like knitting with air.

Your bag is really really cool! Have you tried making anything using bamboo yarn?
