FO Friday: B is for Butterfly and Bag

It’s FO (Finished Object) Friday! And I have two projects to show for it. I actually finished a third but it’s nothing special and I’m not totally pleased so I’m not posting it until I get it back from the little one, rip it, and redo it. THEN I will post it. It’s been really cold in South Florida lately and rumor has it, it’s going to be even colder next week! So I whipped up this sweet little hat for my daughter with some yarn I dyed many many moons ago (4 years ago apparently)¬†with Kool-Aid.

Dyed Yarn

That bowl of tangled coloring yarn? Turned into this!

Butterfly Crocheted Hat

Awww my poor sick little monkey (verdict from the doctor: strep throat + outer ear infection). Managed to smile for me anyways though and that’s why I love her so. The hat is great. The pattern is wonderful. I worked this little thing up in about an hour. Easy, peasy!

So the other project I’ll be putting up for your enjoyment is the market bag you saw me start on last Wednesday!

Go Green Market Bag

I love this bag. I actually had finished it last Friday except that I’d seen this other lady’s take on the bag and I loved the idea of edging it. So I wanted to edge mine too! This bag makes me very happy. It is a great size- not too big, not too small and the CD on the bottom is brilliant. It gives the bag just a hint of structure and weight. If I was the kind of person that liked repeating patterns, this would definitely be the type of pattern worth repeating. I’m actually thinking of repeating it anyways because really, it’s excellent! Voila!

Crocheted Market Bag

Well, back to the hook I go! I’m still working on Christmas presents and having a fun time doing them. Two are going right now. I hope to finish one soon, maybe tonight even. The other I probably won’t work on much this weekend because I’ll probably see the Intended Recipient a bit. So instead I’ll likely begin something new, something blue.
