Finished Trial Market Bag

Yup, it’s done and in the stitches I posted earlier.

It looks like this

Here, I’ve stuffed it with plastic bags, soon to be recycled.

I’m not really satisfied with the shape or the stretchy acrylic yarn,
but I like the stitches well enough.

I’ve started another one using shiny polyester (or maybe nylon?) twine

I’ve also given up on the cabled hooks and am using a 2-ended metal one.

I find that between the twine and the slippery metal hook,
I need to wrap the yarn the other way (and twist it more)
to keep it from sliding off the hook.

This is slower and annoying, but what are you going to do?

Anyway, the new one is looking lovely in it’s shiny teal twine.
