Thanks to a rambling rose we have another fabby knitted pole at Henshaws. Its knitted from plastic bags which made me think maybe i could knit a plastic bag from plastic bags. THANKS SO MUCH - WE LOVE IT :o)

I am imagining these in Baltimore and DC today and all week with all our Inagural events. They would be seen and have a place in history huh?

thank you for following me! I think a plastic knitted plastic bag would be fabulous for carrying magazines, but also for yarns and plastic canvas and fabric and all sorts of supplies. however, every time I put my lunch bag in a tote, there's the inevitable leakage or condensation, so I'd have to line my knitted plastic bag with a plastic bag.

just saying.

yay plastic bags!

And they weather better since it takes about 500 years for them to look bad.

I have some plastic bags crocheted from plastic bags that my lovely mum endured sore fingers to make for me! ;o) They always cause a stir at the check out and the biggest hoot of all is when someone says "you should make those and sell them", errr, no, that's not the point at all!! Anyway, I highly recommend making one! ;o)
