Preparing for the Farmers Market Season

Over the past week I've been practicing my crochet stitches and started a real project. Here's the beginnings of a string bag. Hey, have to start easy! The yarn I'm using is Samoa Mouline, a 50% cotton/50% acrylic. My town is finally going to have a farmers market-no more commuting around to get to a market. The market starts June 15. I think I'll have time to finish it by then and will soon bike to the market and shop in style. The bottom photo is the finished bag from "First Crochet Projects for Beginners" by Lesley Stanfield.

You will be shopping and supporting your local farmers in style. That looks pretty advanced to me since I have no idea how to crochet :)

Sounds like a great frist project, Betsey. Not only are you supporting locals farmers in style, you're using human power to get there. Well done!
