Bamboo Cardigan

With three quarter sleeves, this was fairly quick to knit.  It took longer to get the buttons to finish it this weekend.

The button loops on this one was a first for me.  They were made by stitching a couple of loops of yarn and then using a buttonhole stitch along the length to form sturdy loops.  Definitely makes a change from buttonholes.

This is. A beauty and I bet with the bamboo it is super soft.

Very pretty, it looks so sweetly feminine. How do you like knitting with the bamboo? I love to knit with wool and have wondered about the bamboo. Does it hold up as good as wool or is it too soon to tell?
