It’s 18 months since I first stashed this yarn to make a Market Squares bag for a dear friend. She was with us when Isabelle was born and we are hoping she will be able to make it (from interstate!) when this little one arrives. So this yarn was the first thing I pulled out once I finished the baby knitting. I did look at the Market Squares pattern, for a couple of days in fact. I even cast on. Three or four times. But in the end it was more than my pregnant brain could cope with and so I returned to the old faithful French Market Bag, with my favourite mods.
All it needs now is felting, which requires time with the washer, something that is in short supply at the moment. I feel like I have been washing 4-5 loads of washing a day for weeks. I probably haven’t been doing quite that much washing, but I tell you, it’s close.
