I had a question from Portia (angelpm) regarding the moss stitch bag:
Can it be made from some type of wool that doesn't require it to have a lining?
I find that wool tends to stretch so if you were to use the bag unlined I'd advise only using it to carry very light things.
One way of making it a bit stiffer would be to knit with 2 strands of yarn. You'd probably want to use slightly larger needles and of course the bag would be a bit larger when finished.
Or knit it twice the size and then felt it down.
Any reader's suggestions are welcome!
