Thats good thinking, Dot. I realized that the bag I was thinking of knitting was made out of hemp, and I think hemp will be slightly too scratchy and hard to match the thickness with yarn. So since I've never knitted with circs and such before, im thinking maybe I could knit 5 rectangles, of varying sizes, seam them up and then put a piece of cardboard in the bottom and line the sides with some satin fabric scraps I have in a drawer. I'm thinkng I could even knit the rectangles in red and go to the fabric store and pick up some green remnants of some sort, so it will be Christmas-y.
