Bamboo Needles... different results?

Hi,

I just bought my first bamboo needles a couple of days ago… mainly because I needed DPN’s for the sleeves in a baby sweater and I couldnt find metal DPN’s in 10.5 size… more than excited that I wont have a seam this time, I start knitting… and… the results are completely different!!!

The knitting looks thicker and completely different than the rest… why??

Is there something I havent considered?

I can’t imagine why unless, because the yarn doesn’t slip as easily on the bamboo you’re not pulling it as tight. Ummmmm…yes, I’m betting that’s the answer.

:thinking:

Some people do get different gauges based on what material of needle they use, so that very well could be the problem.

Thank you! I am going to try again and see if the same problem comes up… if so… do they make 10.5 DPN in boye?

I get a different gauge on plastic needles and bamboo nedles.
