One Crafty Project is Complete

July 30, 2008

Last night, while re-watching a bunch of LOST episodes online, I finished this crocheted grocery bag that I’d shoved aside in order to finish my sweater. This is the pattern I used (for the large bag), though I didn’t follow it exactly. I’m so happy with it! Ignore my dusty bike, bag of soil, & laundry hamper compost bin please!

I just had to test it out, so I walked to the nearby store & was pleasantly surprised to find these delicious little peanut butter pretzels! And they were on sale too.

Yeah, they’re actually vegan! I’ve had them once before. They sell them in the bulk section at the Alberta Co-op, but they’re spendy. Here’s a picture of the ingredients. If only I could figure out how to make them myself! Actually, that’s probably a dangerous idea.

I also finally tried Crystal’s awesome cornbread recipe. It’s yum! I added some sweet corn, about 2 tablespoons of minced Serranos, & two chopped green onions to the batter. It’s pretty sweet, which I love, but if you don’t love sweet cornbread, you should cut down on the sweeteners. I made a batch of my black bean chili to go with it & it was quite a lunch!

    You are so crafty! I love the bag! Also, I have been craving pretzels for a long time and kept hoping I would stumble across some that would be vegan. I am heading to Last Thursday tonight so I will be sure to grab some!

    Love the bag! I’ve been wanting to knit my own produce bag for a while now…but things do get put off for more fun things, like kilt hose and mini blueberry tarts!! Ah, so fun…

    Kel—You should try it! Crochet is much easier to fix mistakes on. You just pull out the area you messed up on, rather than having to take the work off the needles, rip out, then put them back on without twisting the stitches, etc. It’s fun!

    VeganFabulous—Ha! I first had these at the last Last Thursday. Have fun!

    Jennifer—Thank you!

    Sara—Maybe you could try the smaller bag since it takes less time. I started this thing over a month ago, so it’s something you can work on a little then put away for as long as you want. I can definitely understand how things get set aside for the tastier-type projects!
