Oh I always admire knitters who can get that tensioning right for Fair Isle color work! The tote looks perfect!

She did do great, it does look perfect, just like in the picture at KP. I just ordered a kit for myself (assuming it's still available when they fill the order) and hope, really really hope, I can do even half as well.

ETA: My kit only cost $51.08!

WOOT WOOT GG!! I hope you have as much fun as I am.

The two-tone knitting just takes patients. I work a couple of rows and then untwist the yard. Always stagger the carried yard so that the pattern lays flat. Some will also press out when you connect with the material for the lining. There is a also bias that can be applied to help with the shape.

I hope you will post your version when you get your kit going!!

I can hardly wait for it to arrive. I'm not sure I'm ready to do it yet, one day. It's so cute, I don't want to mess it up and yours looks really perfect.
