my new shopping bag!
I just finished my new mesh hobo bag (from freepatterns.com) and I love it



instead of knitting it 15" deep, I made it 13" and yet it still fits (as seen in the pic) my entire Christmas stash--three giant red hearts, one normal RH, one giant bernat boucle, two Vannas, two Carons, one skein of linen, ` and one Skein of LB Mystery. A Grand total of eleven skeins of yarn. I guess I'll have to make two--one for yarn and one for the market!

Looks great! It holds a lot, but I bet is crunches up into practically nothing when empty.

That is great! I love it...simple but elegant and very practical. Great work and I just might have to check out the pattern.
