I am knitting a small one skein tote (my first project, YAY). The pattern was knit in the round until you reach about 8". I did that and I am trying to make the handle longer than it calls for. If I do end up having any yarn left, I would like to make the tote part a little taller. Can I just go around and pick up stitches and then begin knitting again? Will that look stupid? Or since it at the top, I could do a double crochet border or something like that. I am going to felt it, so maybe none of it will look any different anyway?
