From Knitting Daily:
Anyone who has visited Continental Europe can tell you that the daily trip to the ­market is as natural as breathing. Vicki selected linen, wetspun from fine long line flax, for strength, and tested the durability of this market bag with a few canned goods, some oranges, and a bunch of bananas. Your shoulder may wear out before the bag does!
