This was made from some yarn that my friend John gave me for Christmas. I'm not exactly sure what the color or style it was, but I do know the brand, and that you can get it at Big Lots. Anyway, I tried to kind of give it a leafy effect, if you look really close, and the color just reminds me of bamboo.
