So many ends...

I can't believe this Year of Projects is almost over!  Next week is our wrap-up week and then we're off again into another new YOP year!  Whoo Hoo!

I guess because I hadn't made enough things, this week I got the urge to make a new Market Bag.
This design took more time to make than other mesh-type market bags I've crocheted, but I'm curious if that solid bottom will stretch less than the other ones I've made.  I look forward to trying it out.  


AND I finished crocheting my Vintage Petals Mandala!   Yay!
Sorry for the tease of a picture, but there are so many ENDs in this thing and I want to sew them in before I show the front finished.  

Believe it or not, what's pictured is only half of all the yarn ends - I'm so glad I stopped midway and sewed in all the ends up to that point before continuing on.  All in all, there are 38 ends in this smallish project.  So many ends!!!  

Next week I'll post a picture after it's truly finished and blocked.  I finally got over my color-angst and it turned out some better than I anticipated.  😊 

And that's it from me this week!  Check out our group on Ravelry to see what other YOPpers are up to!

  1. Nice market bag. Let us know how you like the solid bottom. All of mine have solid bottoms so I have nothing to compare.

    That is a ton of ends to weave in. The teaser photo is a good idea. Makes me look forward to next week's post.

    1. I plan to make another bag next month for a CAL. I love these mesh market bags - once I got over how stretchy they are, I'm really please with how much they can hold. The solid bottom can't help but make these more sturdy. I haven't been shopping with it yet, but I'm sure I'm going to like this design.

  2. Yes, sewing ends in is the way to go otherwise it is soooo overwhelming. Can't wait to see your secret unveiled.

  4. I like the solid bottom in a market bag - less chance of things falling out. And all those ends are one of the reasons why I've never tackled making mandalas!

    1. A long phone call with a long-distance friend made for pain-free ends weaving. ;^)
