I have to say that this bag turned out GREAT. It (and the gorgeous Araucania Ulmo Multy yarn) was the hit of WWKIP Day.
I’m HOOKED on string bags.
I’m giving my beautiful string bag to my mom for her birthday.
The Asheville WWKIP Day event I facilitated was a big success. Nice turnout, lovely people, new friends and Joni saved the day by getting us a tarp because it did indeed rain not too long after this pic was taken.
A string bag, knitters, is not only a great way to wean yourself off plastic shopping bags. It’s also an ideal present for people who don’t like wool or handknits. And as it’s a useful item for shopping, the beach or general schlepping, a bag is just about THE most practical thing you can knit.
Which isn’t to say it can’t be a thing of beauty. If you listen carefully, you can hear that my bag has the ability to softly emit Jay Ferguson’s “Thunder Island.”
