FO- TOO LARGE? Knitting Bag- error turned success!
Finished in September and packed full for our move... I really wasn't expecting this to turn out so big, and it's too big to use everyday. Originally started to replace my everyday totebag.

HOWEVER, it is super nice for holding just about anything that involves my knitting... or not....afghans, sweaters, needles, yarn, couple o' cats, lunch for 25, stray volkswagons AND the kitchen sink!

It is beautiful! LOL My husband thinks the size reminds him of his efforts to make gravy! It gets thick so he adds liquid and it GROWS..... (better if I make the gravy btw)

Anyway I like your tote!

It looks great!! Even though it came out bigger than you expected-now you have an excuse to make another and looks like this will come in very handy.
