I try to live green all year round (not just for Earth Day!). Living in Portland OR makes it pretty easy – we have great public transportation & bike routes, recycling (and now composting) is a way of life, and most of our grocery stores & restaurants stock organic foods. And the city of Portland recently banned plastic bags at major grocers and big-box stores. So it’s not unusual to see folks carrying their own bags.
Our very own Kim designed this week’s Freebie Friday – the very cute Mary’s Summer Bag, perfect for bringing to the grocery store & farmers markets! I always like using a knit bag for my fruits & veggies & Kim’s bag is perfect – solid enough so stuff doesn’t fall through (who wants go chase grapes falling through the holes?) but airy enough so the veggies can get air.
She even created 2 sizes! A big one for major shopping excursion and a small one for a quick trip.
This bag is great for hauling to the gym or to the pool. And since it’s made with Shine Worsted, you know it’ll be soft & strong. (But Dishie would be a great choice for this bag as well).
Kim is also a part of the IDP program! She has one pattern – the Dimpled Cable Hat & Fingerless Mitts. Kelley loved it so much she asked if she could model them!
You can get the pattern for both for only $1.99

And don’t forget her free pattern!
Have a great weekend everyone!
