market bag

I don’t knit things for other people that often.  Mostly because I take a long time to finish an object.  This year however I decided to make something for a friend who also watched our animals during the holidays.  The pattern is called Eastern Mountain Tote by Tanis Gray.  The pattern wanted you to create the body of the bag first then make the bottom.  I started by making the bottom and working my way up.  It seemed easier to me and I only had to sew on one side of the strap.

It took me about a month to complete it.  I had to backtrack a few times to fix mistakes, but I am very happy with the results.
