WOO HOO!! Another Market Bag Completed!!

I've been working on this second market bag since I came home from work today. So that's what? About 3 hours!! But, I was determined to finish this today so that I could move on!!

And here it is--Lindsay's second market bag:


I like the design of this bag--it actually has a rectangular bottom so that items can lay flat in it. A big thank you to Cathy Phillips of CAP's Crochet for designing both of the market bags that I've made.

Let's see........what should I make next? I know!! I think my son is feeling left out!! He has been seeing me make Christmas presents for the girls, and he did ask me a few days ago what I was making him. I asked him what he would like, and he really didn't know. I suggested a knit hat since he does deliveries on the weekend. It's been pretty cold out lately, and it's just going to get colder!! So, a hat it is for him!! He was agreeable to this and would like this made in black--a plain hat, he says.

That will be the next project on the needles!!

Just a reminder--I'll be posting my item for the Holiday Expo at Internet Cafe on Thursday morning. You can check out the details about this here. If you'd like to participate, be sure to link up with Mr. Linky on Thursday!!

My "Gratitude Journal" is going along well. I'll be posting what I've been thankful for also on Thursday with Sonya's Thankful Thursday!!

Whew!! Thursday is going to be a busy day!!

K--that's all for a while!! I have more knitting to do!!

WOW Beth...that's beautiful!!!

The colors are dreamy & creamy! She's gonna love this one! Is it strong enough for books...like Bibles? Lindsay will love it and chose good colors!!! Blends nicely!

Great JOB!!!

Don't do socks OK...cuz you might misplace one on your own foot without knowing it's there...Old Timer...(lol) Anyways...you think they have patterns for Bible covers! That would be a great thought...

So did you do the whole market bag in 3 hours..or you had worked on it at other times??hhhmmmm?

I think I know your idea...it's for your Giveaway...right? Am I close?
Am I warm? I'm thankful for another project done!!!

I loved that bag!! You are so very talented. Keep knitting, these gifts are PRICELESS!

My mom knits all of her grandkids slippers each Christmas and I think it just might be their favorite gift!

Your Friend,

Very nice market bag. I can't believe that you actually made it. You must be very talented.

I love the market bag! It looks a little southwestern to me the way the colors pooled. I admire your tenacity...my fingers hurt when I crochet as tightly as the bag looks to be done.
