It's good to be back in the FO game. It seems like it's been awhile, though I just missed the last one. I hope to have many projects finished in the next few weeks (if not, I need to do some serious thinking about Christmas gifts!), but am trying not to put too much pressure on myself. I have a lot going on, despite NaNoWriMo being over.
Anyway, on to FO Friday.
As you all know, I've been working on the market bag as a Christmas gift. It was part of two WIPWs and here are those pictures as it progressed.
Obviously not very exciting since it is basically just a circle, but there you go. I used this pattern, yet changed it a bit. I added two more rows of increase to make the bag larger (and my gauge was a little small), as well as a few more rows of basic rows as I went up the sides of the bag and also added a few more decrease rows as I wanted the opening a little smaller since I increased at the bottom a little. I also kept decreasing the top until I got the correct number of dc to match the pattern when working on the handles. My only regret is not making the handles bigger. I didn't really realize how little it was until sewing the two together. Because of that, i didn't do the edging since it would make them even smaller (hole wise).
