The finished market bag. I added a row of single crochet around the entire top and handles. It's on the small side but will still stretch to hold quite a bit. We forgot all our shopping bags when we took our weekly trip to whole foods but I was just finishing the handles and had this with me.. so I already used it. Most of the dry goods fit into the bag plus some chocolate..(^_^)

I saw these little diaper covers on etsy in Adrienneengar's shop and thought they were too cute. Of course I had to buy the combo pattern and am attempting the little hat too. When I was working at Michael's craft store I stocked up on the Bernat natural soy yarn when it was discounted so I have a nice selection of baby colors. My daughter likes the light green rather than blue. There just happens to be alot of off white and green so I'll use those colors for the hat and a little sweater and another diaper cover.

There was a little dying going on today. My camera didn't pick up the aqua color very well. The true color has more green in it. I think I will blend this roving with some silk or tencel and card a few batts on the drum carder or I may just spin it as is or I could do both!!

Another beautiful market bag! The colors look very "Florida."

the colors do look very Florida. I was using up some yarn from the stash.There seems to always bet an extra ball of yarn left over from every project. It starts to add up.
