The Market Bag!

Ok folks! Finally, here are some photos of the Market bag, as modeled by my friend, Nicole. Why Nicole and not me? Because Nicole is cute, and I frighten children over the age of 2, small dogs, and most horses....





















You can probably see where I messed up a little on the pattern. I dropped my stitch marker somewhere around the 7th round (it didn't fit right on my needle and kind-of fell off). So I must have started the next round one stitch too far over or something. It doesn't look too bad.






















Here's a close up:















And this is a flat, empty shot:














So now, when I start on the other one, I know to go 2 rows shorter so I don't run out of yarn when binding off...grrr.... And also to use better stitch markers! Once I got that stitch marker-thing straight, I had no problem!

That bag looks great! I can't believe how much it can hold. The (empty) bag itself isn't heavy, is it?

Hey there! I know, it just keeps expanding!

It's super light, about the weight of a t-shirt.

Okay, I really like your bag! I was planning to knit Saturday Market Bag, but I may go for this one instead.

Gina said...

Thanks, Beth! It was very easy and it knit up really fast. I like lacy knitting for that reason.
