These exchanges conclude the Harry Potter Scarf Swap fro the old Crochet Depot
Am I a Harry Potter fan as you can tell, what I like is my ability to create stuff inspired by the movie. I wished I went to a school like that, the fun and the attention from the professors to the students is very enticing. Also the fact that Now that Dumblerdore came out of the closet , maybe things will be better in the Wizardly World of Harry Potter lol! I was not shocked, but had a gay old time enjoying the fact, I think it is good, Kudos to R.J. Rowling. Thanks for stopping by.
I finnally finished the Hat and it was fun making this video. Bamboo is a very peculiar yarn, it has many filaments and a luster sheen. This one in specific is Royal Bamboo by Plymouth Yarns. It behaves a lot like cotton when wet. It soaks up water of course it is plant material. I would recommend itfor knitting with size 7 or abov needles. Crochetting was a challenge for me, so I decided to do a knit project. Thanks for stopping by!
I am working on this Bamboo hat and will be done in a day or two. I will be making a video on how to block this hat, we shall see how Bamboo handles water! I will be working on my Irish Hiking Scarf, which I am halfway + 5 % done and start my other Harry Potter inspired hats and scarves. Thanks for stopping by!

Tips for Working with Bamboo Yarn
If the antibacterial property is something you are looking for, stick with a 100 percent bamboo yarn or choose one that has at least 70 percent bamboo for best results. Use blunt-ended needles to cut down on the splitting. I did find that to Knit slowly at first was a way of being able to avoid splitting the yarn. This is not a yarn for the beginner. If you're looking for strength in the fabric but are using a fine bamboo yarn, try knitting with two strands held together.
Anyway I am taking a few weeks off from Crochet Depot to get a new perspective and come back with new ideas and energy for the Holidays. I put a lot of energy into the group and it feels like there needs to be more community type energy otherwise it gets boring if it is just about me. I want to thank you for stopping by and stay in touch as I will be working on other crochet and knitted Potter scarves and Hats pretty soon, before my next trip.
