This is probably how the designer of this cool knitted bag intended for it to be used:
However, I am sending it to a friend in St. Croix, and THIS is probably how she will use it!
Here is a detail of the stitches:
The Montavilla Market Bag pattern is FREE at KnitPicks here.
I had fun with my sisters, Jeaka and Marian. They are so good to me! Here are a few of our adventures.
Heading to Blazing Needles, an amazing SLC yarn shop.
Going to Nothing Bundt Cakes with our sweet mama. We bought four flavors, then shared the quarters.
Visiting Orson Gygi, the COOLEST kitchen supply store Ever.
Super Auntie Jeaka and Super Auntie Marian took the Boogedy to a splash pool! Super Auntie Jeaka made visiting splash pools a priority during the Boogedy’s visit.
And near the end of the visit, Jeaka took him to Cookie Cutters to get his first ever haircut that I didn’t do myself. We chose to buzz it for the summer, which I think is adorable, but which he doesn’t like because he’s never had anything but long, “grupply” hair.
Here’s a picture of the big boy with his new “do”. We visited the playground near our old house, where we took him to play the first 3 years of his life. It hit home how big he is getting!

A few days ago we bought a 1999 Cougar, for the increased gas mileage and air conditioning!
Secretly, though, I think Zach just wanted it for it’s bedazzled mirror.
We gassed up the van to get us home one last time, and discovered we were a quart low on oil, but the BP gas station didn’t have any. A very old fellow (Ziggy) offered us some oil if we’d just pull into his car lot around the corner. Here is his piggy, Socrates:
I stopped by a yarn shop on my way home! I’ll make myself a purse. This yarn is called Chocolate and Cherries:
For Kristin, Here’s a spider we saw along a trail near a creek:

The other night we went to an outdoor concert in Seaside. The Boogedy is still singing “Put your hands up!!”.
Today the sky was grey and the water kind of choppy, but he insisted on swimming anyway!
