I love this!  I couldn't crotchet to save my life, but I bet it could be knitted, too... Suddenly all those kroger bags don't seem so annoying...

I know, it kinda takes the whole 'ugliness' away from those stupid plastic bags, huh? lol. I was actually thinking about knitting one.  I think that would be awsome but, being that I am definately not the best knitter in the world, I'm not sure how well I could get it to come out.... If you knit one, I want to see it though, I think that'd be great.  Like, some cables or something.

The bag is very cute and the pocket is so smart!

I've used bag yarn before, cut into loops like you mention - but are you saying that you dont even bother to make a "ball" of the bag yarn? (I've heard it called plarn...  Smiley

I guess I'm asking if you just add the loops as you go - somehow my brain isn't comprehending.

I make a really long strand of the loops then, I roll it all into a ball.  Occasionally, if I'm really bored, I'll make a big ball.  But no, I don't just do it a loop or two at a time.

Yah, a lot of people call it 'plarn'.  I just don't like the word and no one knows what that is so, I just say I use plastic bags.  And people are a lot more impressed when you say that lol.
