Market bags

So I've been on a market bag kick lately. After the beautiful, golden Oregonian Market bag, I made two more for dear friends. I have also started a baby sweater that I plan to post on Etsy. Yesterday I started another market bag in Sugar'n Cream Blueberry for one of my nieces...I think. Silly girl won't respond to any my questions about what she wants for her birthday...of course neither will her mother. Must be a hereditary thing...
I thought she might like a Smash book, but who knows...a market bag it shall be. I wonder what I should fill it with for her. Sent off my mom's birthday present finally. An OSU orange shawl , which I think she will love. I've had it made since January. Well it is now time for the pictures of yarn and projects... :) Enjoy!

A finished bag and new project

I finished the Oregonian Farmer's Market bag this week and had the privilege of delivering it in person to one of my favorite peoples! 


Now, I have decided to try my hand at making baby stuff to sell on Etsy to raise some funds for a couple of road bikes.  In the meantime, I have started a super slouchy hat in Shepherd's Wool, colorway storm.  I purchased the yarn yesterday at Knit Purl in Portland.

¡Uno Más, Por Favor!

It's a handle! Now I just need one more.  I decided not to make the huge single sling-esque strap.  It's harder to put stuff into a bag with only the one strap.  So two handles, it is.

Who's ready for some handles?

This bag is! :)

Oregonian Farmer's Market Bag

I'm making a bag, a Farmer's Market Bag, to be specific.  It's the color of spicy mustard in my opinion. The yarn is Ella Rae Phoenix, colorway Medium Wheat, and it's 100% Egyptian cotton.  The yarn is so soft.

Nothing in this world beats that moment when you realize you have been inspired to do something for someone else.

Today I received my weekly Lion Brand email.  It was full of tote bag patterns.  When I saw the Farmer's Market Tote, I knew exactly who would love/need this bag.  So now I must find the perfect cotton yarn and I'll be set!  I am so excited.  This is the first time I have been excited about a project in a while; I truly hope the feeling lasts.
