if you are a regular viewer of this show then you might recognize the above. living in seattle how could i resist heading to trophy cupcakes to pick up a limited edition cupcake that martha stewart herself featured? recipe available here (warning links to video).
getting one wasn't so easy, the lines were long and they were out when i got there. my blogless friend jan who lives dangerously close to trophy managed to score some a short while later and picked one up for me, thanks jan! yum!
i know i owe you a photo of the mystery item soaking in the sink (if you are on ravelry it isn't such a mystery). i need a little more time to get good pictures.
in the meantime, i have whipped up a project that has been on my list for at least 2 years.
after searching high and low for the perfect market bag pattern i found the saturday market bag from magknits. i did several mods, i knit this in the round based on instructions found here and handle changes from here. i found these great mods via ravelry.
this bag stretches to no end. i used it when i bought a big bag of kitty food and lots of cans of wet food with no problem. of course it also holds all of my str just fine too :) i hope to use this at the saturday markets this summer. maybe even knit a few more to have on hand when i grocery shop. it was a SUPER fast knit and goodness knows i have plenty of dishcloth cotton.
