Child's Bamboo Sweater

I actually finished the knitting a couple of weeks ago, but I only got the buttons for the shoulder fastenings this week.

This is knitted in Sirdar Snuggly Baby Bamboo, and was a delight to knit with.  It's so soft to the touch.  I think I could get addicted to knitting with bamboo.

The shoulder edgings were knitted with the main body of the jumper, which made it quick to finish and gives a better look.

I have enough of the yarn left to do a baby jumper.  Baby jumpers are a pleasure, they are quick!

Nice finish. The yarn is soft and would make a cuddly baby jumper.

well Done

Pretty! The bamboo batting I used was soft too! I think I might just have to use it again sometime! :0)

It's so pretty! I love knitting with bamboo, too, but prefer it blended with wool so it doesn't drape too much. It's so soft!
