New bag and some knitting

I have gone knitting crazy, spent lots on wool, and have made my first sock, see below. It was fiddly but fun. I also made a beanie, a little small, bugger, but will pass off to a friend with a small daughter.
This is a bag I made today. Here in Australia there is alot of fuss about plastic shopping bags, and the government has planned that by 2009, shops will charge for plastic bags. You can buy cheap bags $1 each for your shopping, but they are really ugly, So I am making some.
This is the prototype, it's 12" square. It will get alot of shopping into it, and is machine washable. It is quilted and fully lined, with strong handles. Also 100% cotton. Should anyone be interested in purchasing these bags, please email me. Any colour or pattern available, only limited by fabric choices.
