18. -FO

well, here we are... i have finally used the yarn i bought off Yarntopia-Treasures and I have made a bigger version of the nest tote.

To be honest, i'm not quite sure the blend of the yarn. BUT, here is what i do know :
Needles : :US 13 Cir - 16"
Measures : 14" from top to bottom with nothing inside, 19" from left to right along the bottom, 11" straps from top of bag to top of strap inside the opening & it stretches to 21" with things inside.

These bags are great because they're so quick to knit up, the only thing while knitting this particular one was, my hands were blue for the 4 days it took me to knit. I couldn't tell if it was from my brand new jeans or the yarn (hand died) but, my hands are finally clean!

Anyway, with my recent etsy.com luck, I decided to post this one up on my etsy shop. The kercheif's I had posted on there went like hotcakes!!

I'm now working on a beaaautiful brown and pastel pink scarf for myself.

Speaking of warm, I hope this heat wave goes away soon.


p.s - im in love with rowan cotton rope. Mmmmm... feelssogood.

I love your string bag, the green and blue adds a nice kick to it. Blue hands... ick, better than being caught red handed.
