Bamboo-tiful: a love list

Bamboo is awesome and here's why:

1) Bamboo and bamboo blend yarn is genius.
Renewable, soft, smooth, itch-free, hypo-allergenic, anti-bacterial, breathable, shiny!
I need this in my hands right now

2) Bamboo is the best material for knitting needles.
Durable, but not as loud, cold, or slippery as metal; flexible and lightweight, but not as slow as wood; prettier and more warp-resistant than plastic

3) Pandas eat it.  Cute.

4) People eat it.  Yum.
Hungry now?
