Not Quite

I've been looking for a market bag design. There are plenty of ideas on the internet, but I haven't found exactly what I want. An easy knit would be nice. Many of the patterns I've seen use simple lace style stitch patterns. I do enjoy knitting lace, but with big needles I don't find it easy to get into the rhythm of the work. I decided to try a wrapped stitch.

The knitting is reasonably easy and smooth, but the shape I've worked isn't quite right. I need a smaller base and a taller bag. Then I need to find a way to work the handles--maybe crochet. So It's time to rip out and try again.
