A New Love Affair

O Bamboo Needles, how do I love thee?

I’m all about the bamboos right now. I bought a pair of Size 13 Takumi Bamboo knitting needles with a Michael’s gift card I got for my birthday from a friend. I wanted to be able to carry my comfort afghan back and forth to the hospital back in March, and bamboos are quieter than metal ones, which makes it more convenient for hospital knitting. I’ve used bamboo double-points before, but hadn’t tried them in straights, and well, let’s just say that I’m going to be using my 40% off coupons for awhile buying a set of bamboos one size at a time. They are just so smooth and less pointy and the stitches slide so easily along, and I like how the wood warms up in my hands, which will be great during the winter, however short it may be. I picked up some Size 10 needles last week for my current project….and it’s just, ah, bliss!

Can you tell this knitter is easily entertained?
