I can't believe I never posted this! I used it today as a spindle bag, which got me to thinking...

It's a super simple design out of dollar store yarns left over from a hat project. I started with a 6 stitch magic sock toe cast on, increased every other row until it was wide enough, then a purl row. Then it was just round and round with a purl row thrown in the middle somewhere. Once I started running out of the body yarn, I made a row of drop stitch eyelets (maybe double drop stitch, don't recall). The strap/drawstring is a double-foundation crochet, and the few metres of leftovers, of course, became tassels Cheesy

This is cool.  I love useful ways of using up scrap yarn.  Looks really good as well.
