Is there a pattern for the very first bag Kim showed in the segment? It was felted and, when finished, was able to stand up on the table by itself. A beautiful piece!

I have just joined, have you tried to knit with the recycled grocery bags? I am also looking for a pattern for a rolled brim, summer hat to knit (maybe on straight needles?). Thanks, Nancy

I'm not very good at knitting yet but I had to have the pattern for the crosstown convertible scarf. It is just a great idea for a multipurpose item. I'll keep it for when I become a proficient knitter. Thanks, Marjorie (Austin Texas) April 5, 2009

For the Winsy Tote where can you purchase the liner for the purse once you have knitted it??

These woven bags are delightful! Can't wait to clear my loom and try one.
