Grrlfriend Market Bag

Project info
Grrlfriend Market Bag by Laura Spradlin
BagMarket bag (slouchy)
Me and Grocery shopping
Needles & yarn
US 5 - 3.75 mm
7.0 mm
Garnstudio DROPS Belle
2.1 skeins = 275.1 yards (251.6 meters), 105 grams

Kind of messed up the start as I did not stick to the description in the pattern and just somehow increased 8 stitches every other round - which leads to a more oval bottom. In addition, it took me 7 rounds to find out that I was supposed to change to much larger needles for the lace part - but I think it will be fiend.
The lace round takes me forever… nevertheless I like that this bag will be much lighter than a crocheted one.
Did not weigh the leftovers I had, but would assume this will be app. 2 full skeins. Will probably finish this up with the leftovers from my Bali bamboo yarn for the handle. Might be a nice project for leftovers from plant based, not-so-stretchy yarns.

Started with last ball of Belle, the mustard one.

Finished and tried out. Like it. It is quite sturdy and stretchy yet leighter than my crochted bag. Though Not a quick knit for me. It took some time but I think it will get a lot of use
