this is my first FO post here in a while haha Smiley  i've been so busy trying to improve upon some of my other crafty endeavors i've not had time to knit much.  but i did recently finish a few things Smiley

the first is a saturday market bag from magknits with the modified handle that disdressed posted on her blog.  i used patagonia nature cotton by araucania (my new favorite cotton yarn.  so squishy and yummy!)  i decided to use the WS of the stitch pattern....i thought it was much more lovely than the other side Smiley

i've actually made three of these bags, but have given them all away....this green one is the only one i've gotten a chance to photograph.....it happens to be my favorite as well Wink

next up is a scarf i started before christmas, but have just recently given to the recipient haha Smiley  i used encore colorspun by plymouth in a beautiful fall colorway.  i love the way the colors faded...dark brown to tan to a really rich brick red....so lovely!  i have another ball of this just for me Wink

eeeek....sorry everyone for the huge pictures.......in your face!  haha Smiley

Both are lovely; I especially like the yarn you've used for the scarf. It really works well with the pattern.

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

Your bag exudes so much awesomeness!  I want one!

I'm just going to have to make a market bag at some point or something like it.  I always get the plastic bags at the grocery store which I know are a pollution problem.  CBS Sunday Morning this morning highlighted the problem even more.  I was thinking about turning my plastic bags into yarn, maybe I can do it for this project.  Talk about an oxymoron.  I don't know if it will work, but some day I may find out.  I have a million plastic bags (not literally) and I can't possibly otherwise reuse that many.

Oooh, Nature Cotton.

I love that yarn, very soft, but the only time I have ever bought it, I got the bright pink and blue colorway, very fun, right? 

But no matter what stitch pattern I used, I looked like cotton-candy vomit. 
Currently it's in a st st scarf waiting to be frogged.

Anyways, I love your stuff!  Keep it up!

Very nice bag and scarf. How many skeins to make the bag?

thanks for all the comments everyone! 

i used just a little over one skein of the nature cotton for the bag.  it was almost one for the body, and a little extra for the handles.  you should have enough of the second skein left over for a little pouch or something if you wanted...i might make a pretty washcloth with my leftovers Smiley

i love those yarns!  the color in the scarf came out nicely!  oh and nature cotton is one of my favs too!  Smiley  how's the give on it when you put stuff in the bag?  and how many skeins did you use?  looks like a good solid bag!

Great projects! How many balls of yarn did you use for the scarf, and how long is it? And finally, how does one sign up to be one of the lucky people you always seem to be giving away knitted things to?  Grin
