Go Green

Can knitting actually change the world? Probably not but at least it can make a small difference. I needed something simple to knit when I couldn't focus on the pattern for the baby sweater so I decided to make the Everlasting Bagstopper from Knitty. It is a great mesh bag that you can use instead of plastic bags. Even more eco friendly I am using some Mission Cotton that I had purchased a year ago. I have 4 different colors so I am going to make some broad stripes. The pattern is really simple and knits up quickly. I was on the Elann site yesterday and saw so many cute cottons that I may have to make several of these little diddies! The green photo is borrowed from so you can see what it is going to look like.

What a great idea! (Having never felted and having a slight apprehension for doing so,) I like how this bag does not require any felting.

You've got me thinking... I've got this really pretty cotton yarn looking for a good use.

Can't wait to see yours.
