Farmers Market Bag

Farmers Market Bag
Pattern: My own. I actually used a mixture of all the wonderful farmers market bags I have seen including but not limited to Knitty's everlasting bagstopper, Summer IK 07 yoga bag and Magknits farmers market bag
Material: Reynolds Saucy 100% mercenzied cotton colorway 178
Amount: about 250 yards which is a ball and a 1/3
Needles: US 5 circulars

Oh summer how I miss thee. As the leaves fall and the air chills, I find myself still believing that it's summer. Every knitter loves fall and I do love fall. BUUTT I love summer more, summer nights on a huge porch with a porch swing, good homebrewed beer, the grateful dead playing in the background with a few friends(or/and a knitting project on hand). Really that is what i want to be doing the rest of my life.

As I get nostaglic for the summer. I thought I would share my farmers market bag. In Ithaca they have a wonderful farmers market with one stand called Plenty of Posies. They make the most beautiful bouquets, thats what I have in my bag. As an environmentalis and a responsible citizen of this wonderful earth I longer use plastic bags(as much as possible at least) , or plastic bottled drinks or nonreuseable utensils, and kitchenware. It can be hard, but it's rewarding and worth it.

On a lighter note: I miss my hair alot. I just all 11 inches off including my prize dredlock. saddness.
