FO: Everlasting Bagstopper

Pattern: Everlasting Bagstopper by Amy Singer (free on Ravelry)

Yarn: Lion Brand Cotton Ease
Needles: Size 5 and 10 1/2





If you all can remember, I did a post about Eastern Market many moons ago because it caught on fire and I was heart broken(can't find the post). The city was good about making a little farmers market across the street from the original while it was being reconstructed. Thank goodness the building was built in 1873 or it probably would have had to be built from scratch. The building opened back up in July with a lot of hoopla but I did not want to attend. I didn't think it would be the same or hold the same ambiance.

Well, one of my best girlfriends and I was talking and she was saying how expensive veggies and fruit was (she is thinking of becoming a vegetarian) and I was telling her to go to the market and she was like what market? She has never been to the market. I just could not believe it. I told her she has no excuse, because she grew up in D.C. – well since she was maybe 7 or 8, she is originally from Romania.

Anyway, I decided it was my duty as a friend to take her and I would surprise her with a bag. I saved this pattern in March 2007 or 2008 and can't believe it took me this long to make it. Very easy and quick knit. I made it in November/December. Well, I found the right time, reason and stash yarn to do it.

She LOVES the bag, however she thinks it is too cute to put fruits and veggies in it. I explained to her its sturdy and cotton. I had to beg her to do it and we were actually fighting in the middle of the street so I could take the dang on picture with her using it. I swear. Oh and why is she one of my best friends? She asked me was I practing for my 80's!! Gotta love her. If you can make me laugh we straight.







SEE!! I have been knitting! I have plenty finished and ugh projects just lazy as heck to post. Before I got the last two pictures are the same. They are trees behind my house the first is the natural one without the correction.

The bag is adorable! I love Eastern Market. Port City Java is one of my fave free wifi hangout spots in that part of Capitol Hill.
