Some crazy friend of mine keeps joking that she's going to have a baby so that I will knit something for her... she's not serious about getting pregnant but she definitely wants me to knit something for her. That's cool. Her birthday is around the corner so I thought I would make something light and summery for her. I wound up two skeins of Alchemy bamboo the other night, that's about 276 yards. The stitch pattern I picked out is called purse stitch. Using a US size 10 needle is creating a very open fabric, which should be the right weight and also stretch out the yardage.
