Noni has some new patterns out, like this Green Earth Grocery Bag is a trendy option to other shopping bags. The handle hardware is felted right into this bag for extra strength. The Recycle It! Arrow is knit in intarsia on both sides of the bag. This project is great for the beginner knitter. She also has these adorable back packs and pillows. Leave it up to Noni to keep up with the knitting and felting trends. You can purchase her latest patterns from Cascade Yarns or Green Earth Grocery Bag (No. 407)These sturdy, water resistant, naturally insulating, use-them-again bags are a stylish alternative to plastic and paper shopping bags from the grocery and everywhere else. Stronger than other re-useable bags, the Green Earth keeps its shape when full. The absence of stitched seams means it will not come apart even after long use.
