What a lovely bag. I have been considering this pattern, but I didn't like the original handles. I love your modification of the handles. Can you share how you knitted the handles? Did you use handles from another pattern?
Much appreciation for any info you can give.

I love these. I have purchased a couple reusable grocery bags, but they are bulky and I never remember to have them with me.

Are these quite strong? I have always wanted to knit some but would be hesitant about overloading them.

Yes, with the Peaches 'n Cream quite strong. I recommend them.

You don't need one for this, I put the knitty link to the pattern on the original post.

It was a linen stich, starting with odd # of stitches do a sl1, k1 across ending with a sl1 then just purling all the alternate rows.
