1, 2, 3, 4, 5….Market Bags

It’s Been the Summer of Market Bags

It started with my SIL. She asked me if I could make a blue bag from a pattern she liked on Pinterest, the Sakura Market Bag pattern. I thought, “Sure. I’ll give it a try.” It turned out beautiful. I would highly recommend the pattern. Then she wanted a second one. So I made another one, just like the first.

Next, my daughter asked for one. I decided it would be fun to try to create my own design.

So….I had to make a couple, three for myself.

And a friend asked for one.

Well…I couldn’t leave my other daughters out.

You can see where this headed, right?

Market Bags are now available at my Etsy shop, GreenGableStudio.

Handknits, Yarn Haul

Summer Sweater Knit

I’ve been making tons of market bags for others. As soon as I finish one, I start another. They are such fun to crochet.

But my hands were itching to knit a summer cardigan just for me. When I found this yarn at my favorite local yarn shop, The Farmer’s Wife/The Yarn Studio, in Casey, Illinois, I knew it was the yarn for me. It matches perfectly my odd colored, yet beloved pants. (Don’t tell my husband I bought more yarn!)

Then I went on a Ravelry search for a pattern and found the Solana Cardigan by Irina Anikeeva. The cardi is going to be so lovely…and soft. Watch for progress updates.

The Time I Got Sidetracked Knitting Baby Booties

Sometimes you need a break from your crafty routine. You’ve been knitting or crocheting on one project for so long, you can’t stand working on it one more minute. That’s me. I’ve been working on an afghan for a friend. It’s turning out to take a lot more hours of crocheting than I thought it would. The same stitch over and over and over. My elbow needed a break. I needed a break. So…

I found myself scrolling through Instagram, and the cutest thing grabbed my attention. Just like that, I had to make it. I did. I had to. That’s how these adorable baby booties ended up on my knitting needles. Fortunately, they are a quick, easy project. So I made two pair, one white, one pink. They are available in my Etsy shop, GreenGableStudio. So I you have a baby shower in the near future. they are ready and waiting. (I can even make a blue pair, if you want.)
