What kind of knitted bags? One used for a purse, or one used as a yarn project holder, or a market bag? I have been making string market bags for my daughter, she is giving them to her co-workers as Christmas gifts.

I saw somewhere talking about one for garden harvests. My thoughts were they must have much smaller harvests than I do.

Depends on the bag. I like mesh market bags, but don't care for knit ones, felted or not. Once I made a smallish bag for my SIL because I couldn't find a black velvet one to go with her RenFair pirate costume. I used Lion Chenille bulky on size 8s for a simple drawstring bag.

I like them!

There are so many styles of knitted bags now! There is a style to suit almost anyone!

Here is one that is really cool! It's a free pattern, too!

Look at this felted Doctor's Bag! I adore it! It can use up wool stash like crazy!
And here is another one! The PDF pattern is only $5!

Anyway, here is a little Quinn Bag that I knit up, using leftover yarn from the sweaters.

I love my little Quinn Cabled Bags! Especially so because they used up stash leftovers!

Quinn Cable Bag is also a FREE PATTERN! Yay!

I also knit up this Bucket Bag, using leftover Noro wool:

It was so darn easy, too! It is also a FREE PATTERN!

Artlady, those bags are great and I can use the "Knitting Bag" pattern I got from Knit Picks as it is the same style, plus extras.
Thanks for the nudge.

Love your sweaters, mine never look that nice.
