still knitting

Took me MONTHS to finish this.  A Red Heart yarn project – Breezy Knit Market Bag – figured it would use up a large skein of yarn that I had.  Followed gauge but made it wider than the original pattern, created crocheted sides to the bag, made the straps longer and wider and still had yarn left over.

PLUS, even with the extra stitches it is only just as wide as the pattern said it would be and about 3 inches shorter than it should have been!  When I got to the end of the first side realized it wasn’t coming out per the pattern, but was already bored with the design and the project.  That’s why it took so long to finish.  Just got tired of it.  Was thinking I’d make this the beginning of christmas gifts, but my boredom lead to mistakes, so NEVER MIND!  It will still work as my farmer’s market bag.
