It's New Bag Friday!
If you've visited here much you know I LOVE bags*; any size, any shape, any material.
Sheri blames her recent case of startitis on seeing so many wonderful projects on Ravelry. It is great, isn't it?
That's where I found the pattern for my latest stringplay. Here's the start, the bottom, of The Girlfriend Market Bag [Ravelry link - or free pdf here]
I stumbled upon it and immediately wanted to give it a try. I've been eyeing other string market bags but the knit-in-the-round square bottom to this really grabbed me. You start out with 8 stitches and it gives you a chance to use Emily Ocker's circular cast on which is just plain magic. This is So Much Fun so far. And pretty fast, too. The net part is a two-round repeat which should be perfect for a laid-back weekend. We'll see anyway.
*Mary loves bags, too and she's found the PERFECT one for this summer.
