Finished Knitting

I finished up two knitting projects today. The first is a simple pair of booties for a gift. They’re knit from the Fiber Trends baby basics pattern, which is my fall-back quick-gift pattern. The yarn was originally white(wool) with little colored flecks (acrylic) and seemed a little too boring, so I overdyed it orange.

The second project is a market bag I’ll use at the Farmer’s market. It’s knit from a free pattern from Knitpicks, found here:

Rather than their suggested yarn, I used 6 different colors of some hemp-wool blend yarn that I had dyed for assorted other projects (I do my part to support their business, though!). I ran out of colorful yarn and had to make the handles out of undyed yarn. I thought about dying it, but decided I just wanted to finish it now. I can always pull it out and dye it later, although it’s fairly unlikely that I’ll ever get around to that :).
