I did it! The body of the bag I wasn't worried about, it was the handle. It has an applied I-cord. It turns out, I-cords aren't very difficult. Who knew? The kids are fighting over the bag right now and making lists of colors they want them in. It didn't really take very long to do either. We went and got some more yarn, but need to find different colors somewhere else.
I'm sorry that I haven't been writing much lately, life has been getting in the way. I'll be posting more soon. Still working on the garden expansion and lots of other things.
