Two summer triangles

I think I have a new favorite yarn - bamboo. It's soft, light, silky and soooo nice on the skin. I bought two skeins just to try it out, and as soon as I touched it, I knew there will be more coming my way:)

I used my bamboo to knit a triangular shawl for the beach. I don't have the right photo (well, there's no beach anywhere near me), but I think this is perfect to wrap around your hips, when you go for a stroll down the beach. The upper part is knitted in a plain, solid pattern (to cover you know what;)); the rest is a nice lace that looks great and is, well, breezy:)


And here is the bamboo's cotton sister:
