saturday sweets



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.

::normal::

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.

::stretched::

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.

I wanted to drive right up there from BURIEN when I saw that show! If I wasn't working my butt off at the moment I would go but I can't justify the drive. Maybe sometime next week! I have to go!

The bag looks great! I knit the same in pink and use it all the time. Surprisingly, it really can hold a lot...even if it's touching the ground at that point.

I really love that blue and love how yours turned out!

I may have to CO for that, as I have some similar blue cotton yarn screaming to be knit into this bag.

Thanks for the links with the mods too.

That cupcake looks too good to eat!

I could really go for a cupcake right now :)

This is a great time to be knitting bags for the market. I can't wait until our local farmers market starts up again. I love the color you used!

I'm so jealous of your cupcake! Is it as good as it looks?

I love your market bag, but when I tried to follow the link, MagKnits is no longer available... Can you email the pattern to me if I provide my email address?

I, too, would love a copy of the pattern. Tried contacting magnknits, with no luck.

Thanks!
