Crocheted market bag

Good grief, I have been pretty much neglecting my blog... As much as I love blogging it sometimes ends up being the one thing to go by the wayside when things get busy around here.

Always manage to get some crocheting in though, thank goodness. Even an hour at night when the house is finally quiet is enough to relax and wind down. Crocheted a super quick market bag in rough thick cotton last week, based on a bag pattern from yet another Japanese crochet book (Summer Crochet n2823, picture of the bag from the book at the bottom) I wanted a taller bag good for cramming in all my stuff with much longer across the body straps so kind of fudged the top half of the pattern. I just know this will be my go-to summer market shopping bag.
