What Should I Make Next?

I finally got around to making a crocodile stitch water bottle carrier for my shop.


I know it's been nearly two months since I said I was going to, but I got a little distracted by the barefoot sandals. Now that summer is winding down, it's time to focus on other things. (I wonder if anyone would appreciate hand knitted Christmas tree ornaments?)

Anyway, as I worked on the water bottle carrier, I thought about the other use I make of the small mesh bag. Frozen yogurt carrier.

From time to time, I pick up a quart of frozen yogurt from a frozen yogurt shop. It seemed like a waste to carry those home in bags that I immediately threw out as I had no other use for them. I have reusable bags for the grocery store. Why not have one (or five) for the frozen yogurt shop?

So, I had to make one up with the crocodile stitch.

Ran out of yarn half way through. Again. Whoops.
Which leads to my questions for you. Do you go out and buy quarts of frozen yogurt? Would you consider buying such a cute carrier for those times that you do? Should I stick to water bottle carriers? Or should I move on to Christmas knitting?

  1. The stitching on these is so cool. I'd say stick with water bottles. I bet there's more of a market.

  2. I'm one of those people who uses the plastic bags they give you, but, I do reuse them for scooping litter so they don't go to waste. Otherwise, I'd just have to buy plastic bags.
