Riverside Market Bag

In the last year or so, my city, and many others across the country, have banned single use plastic bags.  So of course, I used this as another reason to pull out my hooks and yarn.  Let's be real, I'm always looking for an excuse to pull out those hooks and yarn!





I named this bag as a nod to the area of the city I grew up in.  Riverside was a great little area, you guessed it, along the river.  It was one of those neighborhoods where all of the kids were around the same age and spent every night at each others homes.  Some of my best memories are from that area, and the blues and purples in the yarn I chose brought those feeling back for me.

Lets talk about this glorious yarn, shall we?  I went with Lion Brand's Comfy Cotton Blend, which is a worsted weight 50% Cotton 50% Polyester blend.  Polyester has come a long way my friends, and paired with this cotton, it's not only beautiful, but sturdy.…

It's officially winter here in New England, and mother nature has come through with that cold air we never seem to get used to.  It's a whopping 11 degrees out currently, and my ears are cold just thinking about it!

For those of you who aren't familiar with a Nor'Easter, consider yourself lucky.  It's a storm that forms off the coast of the North Eastern United States (I'm in the Boston area). Those of us ne…

They say that fashion cycles, sometimes this is a terrible idea (stonewashed jeans should never, ever be a thing again), but sometimes its a good thing, like now, when scrunchies make their come back.





This scrunchie pattern is ridiculously easy.  I'm not even sure we can call it pattern - its more of a How To.

First, lets talk about the yarn.  Bernat Velvet Yarn, this stuff is AMAZING.  If you haven't gotten your hands on some, even if you aren't making scrunchies, I recommend it.  Just keep some on hand to touch and caress every once in a while.  You don't even have to make anything with it.



This yarn is Bulky weight (5) and calls for a 6.5mm crochet hook.  Its much thinner, and softer, than their blanket yarn.  However, I will note that because of the texture of…
