Now that it’s summer, I have more time for my knitting habit.
I have been working on a huge block afghan, which is taking some time. I needed a break from it… something fast and easy to do without a lot of expense; so I headed over to Ravelry to check out some free patterns.
I’m such a sucker for any kind of bag…it’s a weakness for me. (Don’t look in my closet!)
But this bag fit all the criteria for my little excursion. It was easy, fast and cheap! I had small amounts of Sugar & Cream yarn remnants leftover from previous knitting projects so I just pulled them together to make this.
Knitting time ~ this took me a little over 4 hours. I’m not a fast knitter~ plus I was taking in some movie time while knitting, so you know how that can go! In total, I maybe used one skein of yarn. It is hard to say because I basically just knit until I ran out of one color and then moved on to the next.
I love the colors and my girls kept saying, “Mom, I might just have to steal that bag!”
At first, I didn’t think it was going to hold much but it actually held quite a bit. I dug in my fridge and decided to fill it up and see what I could fit into it. My little experiment added up to:
- 6 limes
- 3 lemons
- 5 bell peppers
- 1 avocado
- 6 cobs of corn
I was quite impressed and plus ~it’s so cute!
Added bonus: It’s flexible and collapses into such a small space, I can just throw it in my purse or next to my front seat in the van and I’m ready for whatever little purchase comes my way!
