To Market to Market

To buy some more yarn??? I made this crochet market bag yesterday. I haven't crocheted in quite a while and have forgotten how much I enjoy it. It's fast, easy, and I can watch a ballgame while I do it too! The pattern is basically Turtlegirl's Beginner Crochet Market Bag A Ravelry download. Cristi's felted bag pattern has been a favorite of mine for a long time and I've made many versions of it. I think this one will be a favorite too. I changed the beginning round and the handles a little bit. As you can see, it holds quite a lot of groceries. Imagine how much yarn it could hold!!! I'm working on another one - this time I'm making the bottom bigger and the sides shorter. I used Bernat Handicrafter cotton naturals in a natural tweed and think I can get two bags from one of these (680 yard) skeins.

I've been wanting to make a market bag but just haven't gotten around to it yet. This one looks really nice.
