If you love to traipse thru a farmer's market as much as I do ~ you must never forget your market bag. And when that bag is hand-knitted?...well, you have just sweetened the pot.
I am trying my hand at intarsia knitting & I love the whole idea of this technique ~~ ok...seriously LOVE that I can knit a pattern with just 2 simple colors & it looks like something so labor-intensive.
The pattern is this Harvest Market Bag from this must-have book:
I think about this bag when I go to sleep at night and when I wake in the morning. ...You can really make something so wonderfully beautiful with a simple stockinette stitch??...
I know. I frighten my family when I obsess about this stuff.
And obsess I do because I even love the back of it.
This is the yarn I used:
...and I can't seem to put this project down. Wait 'til I knit the handles in a round and insert twill tape to finish it off!
