the big catch

At the Yarnival last weekend there were a lot of vendors who were selling many different and fantastic things. Spinners selling art yarn, crafters selling hats, scarfs, bags. I met a t-shirt artist who makes really nice silkscreen prints. I got one of his t-shirts and in return I made him a bag.
One of the vendors left a sheet and a big fishnet behind after the festival. I cut it up and used the strips as yarn.

Esther, who is a great spinner, took this picture, and she taught me a new twisted stitch that I used for the bag.

It is knit on 15 mm needles, that Lexi lend me.
