Another One Bites the Dust

Woohoo! I finished a project. Sadly, they seem so few and far between.
The Fantasy Naturale Market Bag is finito. Great easy, quick pattern. On my next one I think I will make the handles longer and the bag itself shorter. It stretched a lot and is longer than I like. I may just gift it to someone taller than me. I used a cheap-o cotton yarn that I have no idea what it is. It was the first yarn I ever bought (not the best for a beginner) so I'm sure it came from Michael's. I plan on making more of these because it was so quick and easy. I started about a week and a half ago and didn't work on it every day. A knitter who works at a normal pace could probably finish this in 1 or 2 days, 3 max.

It is rainy and gloomy here today, so I can't really get a good picture. The first picture is to show the pattern - I am stretching it to the side. The second is the bag sitting in a heap on Henry's desk and the third is my best blurred image to show how stretched it is with a bunch of oranges and apples in it. I think I could cut out the bottom and add a hem and I could wear it as a shirt. But I won't.
