Going Green

Again. It was too hot to work with Felted Tweed, so I stash busted my Louet Euroflax Originals (linen) to create another Green Market Bag. The first one, taught me how much this yarn can stretch. While Stretchability is desirable in a market bag, too much is not... So this time around, I gave it a solid bottom and a smaller needle for the lace part. Its just the right size. it feels great, strong, and very organic.
