11. -FO

So, I've finally finished The Yarn Tote that I found on Ravelry.



size : 11 1/2' in height, 9" in width, 9" straps
yarn :
Frog Tree Pima Cotton in #652
mods : the pattern said to knit until 24" or until desired length. I knit to 23" because I was impatient and now wish I had gone till 30"
needles :
US 8 "way too long because they hit people on the train beside me", US 8 DPNS for icord.

I love it, think its adorable. Wish I had made it bigger, there's always next time. I'll put it to good use today while I trek to the upper east side to check on the best friend. The Lauren is coming along, I'm working on the body now.

Back to work tomorrow!

Ooh, that's awesome! So you think it should have been bigger? I agree you can always make a few in different sizes. Great job.
