Found this fun pattern in a book called Aware Knits! Lots of great ideas in this book. This is actually the second market bag I made. The first one is very earthy - this one is crocheted in purples, blues, greens, tans. I am going to use it tomorrow for the grand opening at our local farmers' market! Can't wait. I'm bringing both bags to fill up with fresh, locally grown fruits and veggies.

This little number was for my youngest son who is obsessed with dinosaurs. He's already told me he is going to be a paleontologist when he grows up and marry Kaitlyn. (Mind you he just graduated from Kindergarten.) But at least he knows where he's going, right? This really was a fun project to do. My sister and mom gifted me the pattern, along with other types of dinosaurs, BUT of course, T-Rex is his favorite. I also made a small dinosaur blanket for his birthday, which he loves. The material even has the dinosaur name printed below the image of each one - pretty cool!
This was originally going to be an African Violet potholder, BUT somewhere along the way I messed up. SO this became several african violets that I crocheted together to form a ring around a central african violet with crocheted edging on it. Turned out to be quite an interesting centerpiece I must say. There's some really nice work out there on Flickr - crocheted African Violets.
I am so excited about this little number. I followed Lucy's pattern at Attic24 and couldn't wait to hang it on the front door. I think it's just the cutest way to celebrate May. Of course anything crochety is a great way to spend May. Such a sweet way to be welcomed home each day!!!
