I’ve been intending to have a go at the Market Squares bag for quite awhile now and have seen many lovely ones on various blogs. Most recently Diane has finished a really nice one. I’ve seen some gorgeous ones made with Koigu but that’s definitely out of my price range so I’m using some naturespun leftover from my Fair Isle bag. I was worried about being able to knit this bag. On the first read through I didn’t understand them at all but I took the book with me to a recent appointment when I had some waiting to do and it seemed to make more sense on second glance. Yesterday morning I cast on and with needles and yarn in hand it makes a lot more sense. I’m working on the foundation row of triangle and will start the diamonds soon. If all goes well I’ll be on my way to another fun felted bag.
I picked up Chris from the dorms last night and we managed to fit all his things into the car with no trouble. It took quite awhile though, he wasn’t very organized, and we didn’t finish loading the car until nearly 8 last night. By 8:15 he’d been checked out and we were home by 10 PM. This morning we’ll have to unload the car and get packed for our trip down to New Jersey this weekend. We’re going to visit my sister and her family and Chris will talk to her husband Mike about a possible internship with his construction company this summer.
