Back to some crafty goodness

Now that the show and sale is over, I finally have some time to work on some crafty projects.  Like a lot of people, I’m doing my bit by bringing my own bags to stores.  This is a bag I made with 100% bamboo yarn.  I bought 6 skeins of bamboo yarn a couple of years ago when I first heard about it but I only used one skein for a scarf and the rest got put away in my yarn basket.  When I saw this pattern from Knitty, I knew I had found a great use for my bamboo yarns (OK, my immediate thought was “ooooh, I’ve never worked with hemp yarn before … look at all those pretty colors, I want some!”).  I sort of followed the pattern except I used applied icords as the handles and I switched the garter stitch base to the inside of the bag because I don’t like the look of garter stitches.  I’m already working on my second bag and I think I’ll just keep on knitting bags with my yarn stash and maybe when I’ve made a dent in my stash, I’ll get me some of those cool hemp yarn to play with.
