Joey says .....

" 90 degrees with 70% humidity and still she doesn't turn on the ac. I'd rage against God for giving me a lush fur coat which makes it even more uncomfortable in this weather but that would take energy. Think I'll just stay on the bed sprawled under the ceiling fan and decide if I should pee or barf into Diane's knitting bag tonight when it's cooled off a bit. Hummmm maybe both?"

Joey aside I need some help. How should I finish the bottom of this bag I'm knitting? It's a summery mesh tote thing made of cottonease so it'll pop into the washer and dryer and still look great. The bottom is just knit and needs something to support the 9x6 shape however it needs to be removable or be able to be stitched in and be washable. Any ideas?

What about that plastic canvas mesh stuff? You could sew or knit a little cover for it (or not). Probably wouldn't be OK for the dryer though.

I'm with Joey...turn on the ac! I'm curious to hear which one he decides on. :) If I had one I would turn it on for sure. I am melting here. Stupid stupid house with no a/c!

I was thinking plastic mesh too. something you can pull out when you wash it.

Yup, I was going to suggest plastic canvas too.

The weather is definitely not hot in the UK - no doubt you'll have heard of all the flooding. Thankfully not near us!

Lovely pic - Joey looks so relaxed ;)

Poor Joey, I would find an AC'd abode. I can't stand the heat, I feel sorry for him with all that beautiful fur. Good Luck on getting that secret knitting finished so you can open your package, that would be all the motivation I would need too. I am knitting my shawl sans beads.
