Summer Exchange

A great, great crafting blog called Craftaholics Anonymous organizes a handmade exchange twice a year.  This is my second time participating.  It is free to sign up.  All you have to do is sign-up and agree to make one handmade item and send it to your assigned person.  In return you will get a handmade object from another crafter that got your name in the draw.

This is what I made for my person:

It took so much more yarn and time than I thought it would, maybe I should have checked my gauge and went down a hook size or two.  But it was nice to get crocheting again.

The pattern in Market Bag by Lion Brand.  I used Sugar and Cream 100% cotton yarn- 3 super-sized skeins!

It is headed out to a lucky lady in California.  I picked this pattern because I thought it would make a great beach bag for her.  I picked yellow for the sun.  She said she did not really like knitted or crocheted items and did not own anything like that, but what what I supposed to make her?  I am a yarn crafter.  It is my thing.  Maybe this bag will be the thing that makes her love yarn-crafted items.


  1. It is a beautiful bag! :) I'm sure your giftee will love receiving it (I know I would!)
    Happy Day!
