well, the bag isn't bamboo, but the finishing touches are!

This was my weekend project - almost 4 skeins of Lion Landscape yarn, a wool/acrylic roving yarn. I just played around with it, no pattern as per usual  Roll Eyes Since I only used one strand of yarn, and it's a rectangular-ish shape, it needed something to stiffen it. I figured a spare pair of bamboo needles was appropriate for a knitting bag  Wink And they go with the bamboo hoops I attached for the handle.

Comments and Constructive Criticism welcome!

I love it! I also love the yarn - I'm not sure if I haven't seen it before, or if I just didn't realize it knitted up so nicely, but I am probably going to steal your knitting needle bag idea, if that's okay by you!

So cute!

I scored the yarn on sale for 99cents a skein, so it definitely made it worth trying. I did have to felt it about 3x as long as 100% wool, though, to get it tight enough.

Feel free to steal away Wink I just knitted a rectangle in the round (that sounds funny!) and tacked in the sides at top and bottom to get the curved sides.
