Knitting a Tote Bag

Posted by Kathy Torrence on Jan 20, 2008 in Knitting, Today's Photo |

I’m currently working on knitting a felted tote bag, and it feels like this project is taking FOREVER! 

It’s a color block bag design – the back will be brown, the front will be blue and the handle will be green.  So far, I’ve knitted the back piece and half of the front piece – next I’ll knit the handle and then assemble the bag.  After that, I’ll felt it, which is basically washing it in hot water until it shrinks and the wool fibers blend together.  It also has some pockets that I have to knit and felt separately.

I’m hoping to use it as my knitting bag – if I still want to keep knitting after all this…

it is all relative! to me that looks like a mammoth amount of progress. don’t ask what row number i am on for the eternal dishcloth. the fact that I know the number of the row should indicate something!
good to see that your health reports are coming back pretty innocent.
