So I've decided to reveal my secret knitting project, which is a mesh cotton shopping bag. After working and reworking it, it turns out what I really like the look of is just a modification of the french market bag. I thought I would be able to come up with an original pattern, but it is just not meant to be on this one. After knitting 3 of those, I guess the pattern must be stuck in my head.
Anyway, I've nicknamed it the "it's easy being green" bag. I'm using Sugar n' Creme cotton, for economy's sake, but I would love to make another out of one of the LionBrand organic cottons. Too bad they're so expensive ($6 for the bag using Sugar as opposed to $18 for the bag using the organics).
I'm working on the handles now, so it should be finished shortly. Here's a sneak peak of the base:
