Went to market with my new market bag! (Although I’m not sure whether the piggy in the nursery rhyme was going to buy or be bought … Something to reflect on!)
Anyway, I’ve wanted a crochet bag for a while and I bought this one as part of a bundle from Julie King of Gleeful Things. Her crochet patterns are brilliant – easy to follow instructions with photos, they work up quickly and she uses lots of different techniques that are good to know.
I love the look of the bag in turquoise and the acrylic yarn is robust and stretchy enough to hold a good amount of weight and it springs back into shape really nicely when empty.
Here it is after the test-run!
And after emptying it.
I love knitting but there’s something so satisfying about crochet cos it works up so quickly!
