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.


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.

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!

That bag is great, I might have to dig out some cotton and give it a try.

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?

would you email me the pattern as well or point me in the direction of where to find it now that magknits is gone?

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