Hello everyone, I hope your summer has been yarny! We just got over a major heat wave here in Southern Ontario. Our temperatures peaked near 120 degrees fahrenheit on July 21. What a scorcher! I have been very grateful to have a working air conditioner :o)
So with all of this steamy, hot and sticky weather I don't really feel like working on a heavy afghan, can you blame me? Smaller projects are perfect for hot summer days. I just started a great throw cushion that will look amazing when I'm done. I love watching it come together stitch by stitch.
On my search for smaller projects, I came across a beautiful market bag on Ravelry. I just love Ravelry, if you're not a member, what are you waiting for?? Check it out!! Anyhoo, I have quite a large yarn stash so I dug out some Red Heart Super Saver and got started.
I just love the design on this bag. The picture doesn't do it any justice. The structural design on the 'arches' are reinforced and made strong so you won't have any sagging while your bag is full of goodies. And it works up quickly, I finished mine in the evenings on a weekend after the kiddies were in bed. I love bringing it to work as my lunch bag, or just roll it up and keep it in my purse for unexpected trips to the store. The pattern offers two sizes, I made the smaller bag. The pattern can be found here, Ravelry Carry Me Away Market Bag If you aren't a member of Ravelry use this link, Etsy Carry Me Away Market Bag
Thanks for looking, and Happy Hooking!
