Look at the selection and prices at www.smileysyarns.com...might be something there that would work for you.

Here's a link to a fairly recent knitted pattern, but if you google "knitted plastic bag" or something similar, you'll find lots of ideas.  Bags crocheted out of plastic bag yarn are more common than knitted ones.

Yes, the longer stitch length is important.  It may well be related to the "rips easily" issue, since a seam with very fine stitches makes a perforated line that would let the two sides separate very easily.  The holes made with stitching are there forever, too, so ripping out stitches/seams isn't a good idea.  Be sure before you sew!

I've seen some great hanks and spools of nylon (among other things) at hardware stores and in hardware departments of stores.  Some comes in great colors and even color combos and some is quite inexpensive.  It would be perfect for a project like shopping bags.

This link might be helpful.  The book is about buttons, but perhaps the techniques will help, and some of the buttons are round balls...
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Similar Shawl to Evelyn Clark's Lace Leaf Shawl? on: January 05, 2008 10:36:26 PM
On page 212 of Barbara Walker's "A Treasury of Knitting Patterns" (Schoolhouse Press, 1998 is the version I'm looking at) is a pattern called Openwork Leaf Pattern.  It is close but I'm not convinced it's exactly the same.  I also found the shawl pattern on another site, perhaps a bit cheaper, if you have to break down and buy it:  http://www.pacificwoolandfiber.com/Patterns.htm

I think you're on the right track...it would be like making a vertical button hole big enough for your ponytail.
