I’ve got startitis. Have I finished the socks for my grandmother? Have I finished the Sea Wool socks for me? Have I seamed that baby sweater? No on all three counts. Will I let that stop me from casting on something new? Of course not! I was in the process of photographing my stash for Ravelry, and I came across the SWTC Bamboo I picked up at The Point last year. It’s such a nice, summery yarn that I wanted to get going on the project that I had purchased it for: the Razor Cami by Katie Marcus. It’s a pretty big change from the original yarn–it’s got a lot more drape and less elasticity, so it might not work out quite as I had planned, but it’s definitely going to be an adventure either way.
The bamboo has been really nice to work with. It’s very soft and silky, and I adore the color (Plum). I do have to be mindful not to snag the plies of the yarn, though. I started on 3.25 mm Bryspun circular needles, and after trying on the first few inches, I’ve moved down to 3 mm Addis. As much as I do love knitting socks, I’m looking forward to this project as a nice change of pace.
