hey everyone, im working on finishing up a really big knitted bag, and i plan on making it my WIP carrying bag. its done all in basket weave st, and its pretty tight, but should i put a lining in it anyway?? cuz' i really hate doing lining, cuz im not the best at sewing, and i cannot use the sewing machine(its straight from the pits of hell, i swear) so can i just do it by hand?? and about the strap, what stich should i make it in, and should i line it too?? ok, thats more Q's than i wanted to ask, but i really need help!!!
