Fast, cheap, and easy
The Girlfriend Market Bag is done and what a nice, fun pattern!
I used all but a few yards of two balls of Peaches & Creme 4-ply cotton - about $3 worth - in color 201 Sea Mist.
And here it is holding a six pack of Mountain Dew Throwbacks. Yeah, I've only had a few so far. Such restraint!
Since this is the first string bag I've made, I don't have any others to compare it to, but I do like this one. I like the square bottom and the fact that it is knit in the round, just because it was fun to watch it grow.
My first time grafting garter stitch. I used these directions.
If you are what you knit, then I'm either fast, cheap, or easy! : )
BONUS: JP tells me that worn upside down on the head it makes a nice Rasta cap
