Help spread the good word about going green!

Today, heading to the supermarket means loading up the trunk with all of your reusable bags… never forget them in the car again! You’ll get so many compliments on your handiwork and environmental spirit, that it’ll be easy to remember to hang this unique bag on your arm. I used Sugar n’ Cream for its price, but you can substitute any brand or blend. This specific yarn works up strong and sturdy, and the pattern uses fair isle (two color per row) throughout to make sure the bag keeps its shape, even if you are buying apples and oranges at the farmer’s market. If you have no two-color knitting experience, this is a good pattern to learn the technique, with simple directions and an easy-to-follow chart. Featuring a two color rib, the bag is worked in the round with minimal (and actually enjoyable) seaming.
