Mean Green String Bag

Hot off the hook this morning! It took me 9 days to complete the bag, but it should only have taken maybe 2. The pattern wasn't that difficult I just got bogged down with the mesh rounds and got a bit bored. But that's just my crochet ADD acting up again. I like that the bag came out smaller than the usual market bags you see. It's easier to stuff into your pocket before heading out the door to your local grocery, farmer's market or even your own backyard garden. I'm definitely pleased with her so I guess she's a keeper!

I mentioned in a previous post that the pattern for this little bag came as a freeb handout from my favorite local crafty goodness shop in Asheville, Earth Guild. And as I also mentioned before I'm not quite sure what the rules are for passing along freebie patterns but if you'd like a copy just shoot me an email: yarn_junkie [at] yahoo [dot] com.

Very cute and it reminds me of Natalie's bag from a few years ago (only hers used WW yarn-which I used the Quick Denim for)
