First Stitches Purchase FO (Kind Of)

I couldn't help myself! I had to jump in and play with some of my Stitches loot right away. Lookee!









This is 100% bamboo from Fiber Fiend in the Stormy Weather colorway. 4 ounces, spun 2-ply, 245 yards. I hadn't spun bamboo before, but I went under the assumption that it would be similar to silk. I set my wheel accordingly and it spun up pretty easily.









Now. What shall I knit with it?

ETA: I just noticed the date on the band is wrong. I blame it on cold meds.

Beautiful Rachel.

How about the cover bag on the Last Minute Knitted Gifts book?

That's what I'm finally using the cursed yellow bamboo for that I bought to make something for my mother. It's turning out really nice.

I'll have to line it, but it's still nice.
