I bought the yarn a gazillion years ago - well, maybe one or two - at AC Moore and I can't remember which brand it was. It came in a HUGE skein. I didn't even begin to use the whole skein! I've knit a couple of other things out of it and have at least enough left over for another dishcloth.
I love the bottom. It turned out really cool. The only problem I had with any of it was the straps. You knit them and then sew them on. I'm really afraid it's not going to be strong enough, but time will tell. R was afraid it wasn't big enough for anything so she did a test. We had just been to the Fresh Market and had gotten four plastic bags of groceries. They ALL fit in this little bag! I couldn't believe it! So, if the straps hold on we'll have it made!
