bamboo & bobbles

I’ve pretty much converted to using Addi Turbos, but I still love bamboo. Some people say that after using turbos they’ll never go back to straight needles, but not me. There’s something organic about yarn on a beautiful pair of bamboo needles.
Yesterday I received the new VK. This issue is filled with bobbles. I’m not a fan of this stitch. (My first encounter with them was this scarf from a Rowan book.)
The most valuable item in the issue is the article by Meg Swansen. She deconstructs Armenian knitting, using a cap pattern to illustrate the technique.
